Pursuits of both Honda and Ljajic continue for Rossoneri.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has remained coy after coach Massimiliano Allegri claimed that there is still plenty of time left for a “transfer gift” to arrive this summer.
The Rossoneri are reportedly continuing their efforts to try and sign either Keisuke Honda or Adem Ljajic, but both remain unlikely at this stage for different reasons.
While CSKA Moscow are demanding too much for Honda according to Milan, considering they can sign him on a free transfer in January, Ljajic continues to stall on signing a new contract with the Viola.
A proposal has reportedly been made to the 21-year-old, and as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday, it is understood that Fiorentina want to include an “anti-Milan” clause in the deal.
The clause would include a €12m buy-out fee, but it would only be applicable to clubs abroad, thus making life difficult for Galliani to have a say in the Serbian international’s future despite already submitting an initial €8m bid.
Galliani has revealed that no more talks are scheduled for either player over the coming days, but did not rule out the possibility that the club will sign another player this summer.
“For Honda there are no updates as the president of CSKA is on vacation. And we are not scheduled to meet with the Della Valle family on the weekend,” he told reporters as quoted by Gazzetta.
The Milan chief was also quizzed on being seen having dinner with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, but stated that it was merely dinner between two friends and neither discussed the transfer market.
However, the door is still open for activity at Milan this summer, and Galliani ended his talk with reporters by suggesting that they would have to “wait and see if the coach will have a gift”.
