CKSA MOSCOW have told Milan again that their Keisuke Honda offer is far from satisfactory after the player scored.
Milan offer €3 million, CSKA Moscow want €5 million and it doesn’t seem like the differences between the sides will be reduced in the summer, although Adriano Galliani said Milan will try to get Honda until the day of the CL squad submission.
The Japanese has already made it very clear that he wants to move to Milan as soon as possible but he’s a true professional and on Sunday he took the field and scored a great free kick in his team’s 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow.
“We’ve had better offers for Honda compared to the Milan one. Certainly more interesting and economically viable,” CSKA President Yevgeny Giner said. “The issue regards both the sum payable to CSKA and the player’s wages. Milan are an important club and Galliani is an excellent director. But they have to understand in Italy that they can’t treat us like losers.
“And we will not let ourselves be conditioned by the newspapers. Honda has not lost any motivation. He is a CSKA player and has a contract with CSKA.” Honda’s contract expires in December 31st 2013, he will most likely join Milan in January. Giner stated earlier this week that CSKA are aware that they will most likely make more money than what Milan offer if they keep Keisuke in their squad if they manage to make it past the UCL group stage and they’re willing to lose him for free.
Honda has agreed a contract until 2017 and will be paid €2.5 million per full season. According to the FIFA agent Ernesto Bronzetti who works as a broker on this deal, Honda turned down many offers, including one from Barcelona, to join Milan.
