Reports suggested Keisuke Honda was very close to moving to the MLS but Adriano Galliani, who’s still in charge, has made it clear that it’s not the case.

Tuttomercatoweb and Gazzetta.it reported on Friday that Milan’s Honda is close to making a move to the MLS after agreeing terms with Seattle Sounders FC, saying that all that’s lacking is the final OK from Sino-Europe Sports, who will officially acquire the club next week.

But Galliani, who at least until the ‘closing’ on the 3rd of March is the CEO and Vice President of the Rossoneri, doesn’t understand where these talks come from.

“I don’t know who spread those stories,” Galliani said to reporters outside of a restaurant where a team dinner was held. “He won’t move until the end of the season. We decided that together; us, the Chinese group and the player. Montella was also kept in the loop. The player is training well.”

Coach Montella hasn’t shown a lot of faith in Honda this season, as the Japan star made just 6 appearances this season, playing less than 100 minutes. His contract with the club expires in June.
