KEISUKE HONDA told CSKA Moscow again yesterday that he wants to leave but there are no further developments.
Honda wants Milan, Milan want Honda and CSKA Moscow want €5 million. The demand of the Russian club remains the same but Milan are still refusing to meet their request and yesterday there were no new developments in the Honda case.
It’s clear that the intention of both Milan and the Japanese is to join forces already in the summer and not in January but the deal is complicated with CSKA reluctant to drop even one euro off the price and the talks remains pretty much stuck.
“There isn’t any news from Moscow about Honda,” Galliani said last night outside of the restaurant Giannino. According to Sky Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Honda spoke with CSKA Moscow’s coach yesterday and also had dinner with the President of the club in which he told them he’s unmotivated and that Milan is the club of his dreams and he wants to go.
Sky reports that Hiro Honda and Fabrizio De Vecchi are still in Russia and will most likely meet with Roman Babaev today. CSKA are currently short of attackers as they’ve sold Vagner Love and have Milanov injured and Seydou Doumbia returning from injury. If they sell Honda the only 100% fit player they’d have would be Ahmed Musa. At the moment there isn’t a lot of optimism that Honda will join Milan in the summer, in that case, the player will arrive to Milan in the January transfer market.
Meanwhile, Gazzetta reports that yesterday fans at Milanello shouted at Galliani: “Give us a gift” and he replied: “A gift will arrive.” But last night after a dinner with the president of Doyen Sports, he said: “A gift for the fans? What gift?”
