AC Milan are currently in advanced negotiations with CSKA Moscow for the services of Japanese playmaker Keisuke Honda.
The powerful 27-year-old is said to be very keen to make the next step in his career and wants to test himself in the Serie A at one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Milan are very interested in the Japanese star, but are being prised out of a move by CSKA with Honda's contract set to expire in January. The Rossoneri were ready to wait until January when he would be a free agent but are now pushing to get a deal done this summer.
Honda is said to be on the verge of completing his move to the San Siro, according to his agent, who is also his brother.
He stated that Milan have made a 'very good offer' to CSKA and is now waiting on the Russian giants to clear the sale.
“We’ll meet with CSKA again today for more talks,” Hiroyuki Honda told TMW. “What I can say is that Milan have made a good offer, a very good offer to CSKA.
“I don’t know if we can wrap everything up today. We’ll look to convince CSKA, because, for us, the deal is ready.
“Joining Milan is not about money, but prestige. Milan, Real Madrid and others are clubs with great value. It would be a big step forward in the career of Keisuke.
“We are waiting for CSKA to give Milan’s offer the OK, then we will be in Italy to finalise everything.”
It would be a great signing for Milan should they capture Honda's signature. He would add more creativity in midfield with his great technique, excellent vision, skill on the ball and his eye for a killer pass. He is also good from set pieces and has a powerful shot on him.
Honda moved to CSKA Moscow in 2009 from VVV Venlo, scoring 19 goals in 78 appearances for the Russian Giants.
