Honda excited to touch down in Italy ahead of AC Milan signing

Keisuke Honda has arrived in Milan ahead of completing his move to AC Milan.

The former CSKA Moscow attacker joins the Rossoneri on a free transfer.

"I'm happy to be here and I'm very excited," he told Milan Channel. "I'm ready to play, I slept well on the flight and I'm looking forward to meeting my new teammates. I think I can give a lot, something more to the team.

"I've been waiting here for this for a long time. It's a dream come true, AC Milan has always been a legendary club for me, I followed them as a child."

Honda also revealed he discussed life in the city and in Serie A with Inter defender Yuto Nagatomo.

"I spoke to Nagatomo, who is a friend of mine. Football is my life and I hope to play well. I can play in any position and I want to score as well as create goals. I want to play in attack but it doesn't matter where."
