AC Milan star Keisuke Honda could be set for a move away from the San Siro after falling out with the new management team.
The Japanese international questioned Sinisa Mihajlovic and his team's method after the club's slow start to the new campaign and his questions have led him to being dropped for the majority of the season so far.
In fact, Honda has only started three games so far and has already been linked with a move away from the club in January.

Honda moved to AC Milan back in 2013 on a free-transfer, but his fall-out with Mihajlovic earlier in the season has seen him fall down the pecking order at the San Siro, and he's growing frustrated with life in Milan.
Speaking in an interview earlier this season, Honda didn't think it was fair of the manager to blame the players for their poor start, and he also hit out at the club's board for not spending enough money to compete with their rivals.
Several clubs in Italy spent big money over the summer to be more competitive, and Honda has hit out at the club for not matching their rivals' ambition.
Honda said: "There is no point in blaming the players. Milan have used countless players over the past few years, and this year €100m (£75m) was spent.
"There are a lot of players who play international football, and they still can't perform for Milan. If we don't learn from this, it means that we are far from rebuilding this club.
"Looking at the past few years, I think it is clear this club cannot start over unless a lot of money is spent, like PSG or Manchester City."
