Manchester United are preparing a move to sign Japanese international striker, Yoshinari Muto in the January transfer window, according to reports.
Reports suggests that the Red Devils have been keeping an eye on the Mainz striker and are preparing to make a bid of £10 Million in the January transfer window.
The 23 year old has been in a red hot form since moving to the German outfit, with 7 goals in his 14 appearances for Mainz. He is not just a good striker but he also possess pace, something Louis Van Gaal has been craving for.
The goal scoring returns for Manchester United is an eye saw with the team having scored 22 goals in 18 appearances and have not won in their last 7 matches in all competition and the team has found goal scoring difficult to come by. United striker, Wayne Rooney has scored 2 goals in the premier league this season while French youngster has scored 5 goals in the league but went on a goal drought before scoring against Norwich last weekend in a 1-2 defeat from the hands of the Canaries.
United should seal the deal in January by any means possible as it would reduce the pressure on Martial; who already has the tag for being the most expensive youngster in the world when he arrived at Manchester United from Monaco for £36 Million.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
