AC Milan chief Galliani: We need sponsors' cash to sign Honda

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits an early deal for CSKA Moscow striker Keisuke Honda is looking unlikely.

Honda comes off contract in December.

"Unless there is an external intervention, such as from one of his sponsors, Honda will only arrive in January," declared Galliani.

"The player's entourage, including his brother, are in Moscow to discuss the move to Milan, but only because he is out of contract on December 31. CSKA are a rich club who asked for a lot of money to release him early, so it seems difficult for us to meet their demands unless a sponsor contributes."
