After Goal.com exclusively revealed Keisuke Honda was 'very close' to joining Milan, the player's technical sponsor Mizuno has told us that the Rossoneri would be a suitable option for the CSKA Moscow ace.
Milan have already made a €13million offer for the Japanese international and his entourage feel a conclusion can be reached, but the big decision remains with the player, who is likely to weigh up his options.
Mizuno marketing director Masatoshi Yamaguchi told Goal.com
"Italy is a key market for Mizuno football. We have a strong position with many Calcio fans. I think Milan are a fantastic team, but it must be made clear that Honda's future is down to him.
"We must not forget that CSKA Moscow got to the quarter finals of the Champions League and they are a strong team in Europe.
"Honda has shown he can play at the highest levels at club and national level. I think he can play at the levels he desires."
