Soccer: AC Milan chief Galliani hints at Honda deal in near future
goal.com -- Jul 06
AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has played coy on the possibility that the club has signed Keisuke Honda from CSKA Moscow, though hinted that a deal in the near future was possible.

Several Italian media outlets claimed on Thursday that the midfielder, 27, has agreed to leave his Russian club for San Siro this summer for £2.1 million on a four-year contract.

However, Galliani denied that the Rossoneri had secured the signing of the Japan international, who featured at the Confederations Cup, though refused to rule out the possibility that he would be brought on board at the Italian club soon.
