Japanese international expected to know future on Tuesday.
CSKA Moscow are set to make a decision on Keisuke Honda on Tuesday, as AC Milan close in on the signing of the Japanese playmaker.
It is understood that the Rossoneri have already agreed personal terms with the 27-year-old, and he is certain to join them in January on a free transfer.
However, both parties wish to secure his move this summer in order for the star to join his new team-mates immediately, but there are various disagreements and problems over the Russian side’s valuation of the player.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed that there were “decisive hours” ahead on Monday night, as he hinted at a possible conclusion to negotiations on Tuesday with Honda’s brother, Hiroyuki, expected to hold further talks with CSKA.
“We’ll meet with CSKA again today for more talks,” he told TMW as reported by Football Italia.
“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.”
Honda is set to sign a four-year deal worth €2.5m per season, but the problem still surrounds his valuation.
Milan are understood to be willing to offer €3.5m for the creative midfielder, while the Russian champions are holding out for €4m and have insisted that they will not offer the Italians any sort of discount.
Nevertheless, it is expected that a deal will be reached on Tuesday with a meeting set for 18:00 CET between CSKA representatives and Honda’s agent, with the Japanese star finally set to discover where his more immediate future lies.
