Yoshinori Muto was linked to Chelsea after the London club announced a new shirt sponsorship deal with Japanese tyre manufacturer Yokohama, that is supposed to be worth £40 a year for the Abramovich club.
This commercial deal brought them to accept some terms, as touring Japan after the end of the season or bring a Japanese player in their squad.
The deal are far to be official, but also Mourinho admitted that are both possible.
Muto is currently playing for Tokyo FC and is by far one of the best Japanese players around, but when asked about his possible move to Chelsea he seemed not very enthusiastic:
“I want to think about it carefully. Where can I go to develop? A team that suits me, where I can play and develop. I’m thinking about that, and for now, I just want to take my time and think it through”
He continued speaking about his promising start of the season in the Japanese league:
“Four goals in five games is a good start, but I’m not satisfied with that, and I want to improve myself”
“If I can get the ratio to more than a goal a game, then I will be able to become a better player, so that’s what I’m aiming for”.
