CSKA Moscow president Yevgeni Giner would prefer Keisuke Honda run down his contract through to December.

AC Milan are keen to buy the Japan international this summer.

But Giner says: "Honda is free to talk to any club at the moment and he is free to leave for the right price. Rumour has it that I've been offered €1.5 or €2million for him, but I don't need it.

"He's an important player for the team and will help us earn more than €2million if we progress through the Champions League.

"If he plays well, he'll be in an even better position to sign a lucrative deal at the end of the year. It might not even be with Milan."
