Keisuke Honda is not expected to leave this summer despite the rumours but at least four men will say goodbye, according to the Milan Channel.

In the last days there have been rumours about Tottenham and Everton interested in signing the Japanese Honda and it was even stated that Spurs are ready to launch an offer for the 29-year-old.

According to the Milan Channel however, no offer has been received for Honda and in any case the player is not on the market and will not leave the Diavolo.

The MC suggests that while Honda will stay, the trio Michael Agazzi, Cristian Zaccardo and Simone Verdi are on the way out as well as a defender (probably Gabriel Paletta or Alex da Costa).

If alex leaves …One e-u spot gets free…i think we should get one young prospect from Brazil for cam..internacional has a player called valdivia. ..very good player…..looks one linked..could get him cheap…defence looks good with paletta and romagnoli. …wisely will arise sooner or later. ..witsel presence will give us good balance…now we just need one creative cam to give deadly passes to our strikers..i believe ibra will arrive in the last days….ibra and bacca will be our starters..with adriano our backup…..milanista’s any suggestions for the cam realistic..After spending on ibra and witsel..i dont belive we can spend big… Read more »


“If alex leaves …One e-u spot gets free”. That is NOT TRUE. You can’t free up slots (regardless of what wikipedia says or whatever). Gandini (verified account) confirmed on Twitter that this is NOT how it works and Milan cannot buy any more non-EU players.


There are no restrictions signing non EU players from within Serie A, so Milan can still sign non EU players from a Serie A club


Menez in the front 3. Either as a 2nd striker or cam


Menez is selfish bro.


with a good coach he will improve and when he does we will become even more deadly in attack


he already have few top coaches. did he improve? no. will he improve? no


Menez has guts to be selfish, like no other player in Milan last year. That’s like saying Michael Jordan was selfish from times to times, although I am NOT comparing Menez in football world with Jordan in bascetball my point is that only high confidence players are sometimes selfish. Menez scored 16 goals


8 from the penalty spot.

Pa ibra

When a team plays most possession in the opponents half and struggle to score..for example lacking the final pass to the strikers, that’s = poor CAM. This was the issue during allegris time. When a team struggles start a move from the back to the CAM for him to feed the strikers well, that’s = poor DMF/CMs. And this is the issue now. What can honda or any other trequatista do when the ball won’t reach him? unlike what many people been claiming, imo team needs a top regista more than a trequatista atm and play de jong as a… Read more »


I had offerd menez and de jong/5M to Dortmund for gundogan.
And offerd Matri paletter cerci and 12/15M to sassuolo for berardi.
Them recall el sharrawy home…


You don’t know much about how transfers work don’t you? And Berardi isn’t sassuolo’s


Berardi is sassuolo´s, they bought him from juve for 15 M this summer


is it Football Manager or FIFA?


Am I the only who wants Nocerino out of the squad? I think he should be the FIRST player to leave..


him and Matri will stay… as much as I hate them, they wont go, at least not this Mercato..


Apparently.. And I can’t believe some people voted my comment down. Nocerino is as bad as muntari.


Bro, as long as he is wearing our shirt, you can dislike him or prefer other players. But if you use words like hate, better change the colours.


*hate to see them in our jersey – better??

where were you when Muntari threw our jersey on the floor?? and he wore captain’s armband next match??

did you hate allegri when he let go of pirlo??


I hope Paletta is the one who stays. Alex used to be good, but right now I think Paletta is better.


Well, the mercato was well until now. I think with a good system we would be able to competete in Serie A and Copa. But on the other hand we cannot forget, that a squad needs time to finds it self and knows about the running-ways. I dont expect the best football, and i dont expect, that we can use all the best of the players we have. But i expect that it will get better while the season is running. Lopez Abate/Calabria, Mexes/Zapata, Romagnoli, Antonelli/MDS Berto, Ndj, Bona Suso Bacca, Adriano As you can see, there are alot more… Read more »


Comment:agazzi zaccardo alex zapata nocerino menez cerci matri out verdi calabri loan out sign witsel biglia abdenour men we are back forza mian


Getting rid of Honda will be a very poor decision imo as first and foremost he is one of the better players we have. The second reason being he brings great attraction from Asia thus bringing in great income for the club.


those second reason was why Honda wanted to leave. he want to be important and not used as a team mascot for Asian branding.


Why Verdi?? Keep Verdi sell Nocerino whats so hard about that Cerci and Matri dodged the bullet for now cause Niang is out for a few months lucky fools, Montolivo should go too Witsel should be brought in and it wouldnt hurt to get this Abdennour if he’s as good as people say Romag, Ely, Abden thats a good look there for options, i say play Calabria since hes been doing good let Sciglio fight for his spot on RIGHT where hes strongest, Abate i dunno, Alex and Zaccardo can go im not too keen on letting Paletta go but… Read more »


hope Verdi go for a loan and a defender who leaves let it be Alex. i won’t mind Honda leaving. but (of course) will happy if he stay.
