ROMAN BABAEV has warned Milan that their Keisuke Honda offer will need to meet CSKA Moscow’s demands.

Honda’s Milan arrival is almost a confirmed thing but it’s still unknown when the player will join. Honda’s agent/brother will talk with CSKA Moscow (probably on Friday – the trip has been delayed) to convince CSKA to accept Milan’s bid.

It’s said that the Rossoneri will offer €1.5m for the player whose contract expires in a few months’ time (December 31st) but according to the Russian club, Milan’s bid will have to be satisfactory as they don’t seem to mind losing Honda for free.

Poli: “I am delighted to be at Milan, we can do well”
Galli: “We work to improve Milan’s youth sector model”

“Honda is not for sale for €2m. If Milan make an offer that we deem acceptable then he’ll leave. If not, he’ll leave in January,” CSKA’s director of sport Roman Babaev is quoted as saying on R-Sport. Milan have a contract agreed with the 27-year-old attacking midfielder, who can also play one the right side of a 4-2-3-1: he’ll sign until 2017 with €2.5 million per year wage.

CSKA’s demand is €4m but it’s believed that Adriano Galliani will not go above €1.5 million, although there were talks that Milan could use a sponsor to sign Honda. In any case, if il Diavolo fail in their summer Honda attempt, he’ll join in January.
