Milan May Have Missed The Honda Boat

Japanese international superstar, Keisuke Honda, says that he will keep his options open when he comes on the market in January.

The 27-year-old playmaker was linked to a move to AC Milan during the transfer window, but the Serie A side declined to pay the nominal fee required to buy him from CSKA Moscow.

Honda’s contract with the Russian club will expire in January, and he will be a free agent, and arguably the best bargain any club will ever be able to land for nothing.

Milan may well have erred by refusing to sign him when they had the chance, because Honda now says that he will pick the club that most appeals to him when he leaves Russia in January.

He has been linked to a host of top clubs across Europe for the past few seasons, and Honda will make certainly make an eye-catching signing- both in football terms and financially- for whichever team will be lucky enough to land him.

“Milan? They are an option, but not the only option,” Honda told Football Italia.

“When the time comes, I will make a decision.

"I have now decided I will leave my club at the expiry of the contract."
