AC Milan transfer rumours: Galliani confirms interest in Honda and Ljajić, Robinho exit likely

Claudio Villa

AC Milan director Adriano Galliani has lifted the lid on some of the rossoneri's transfer activity, confirming an interest in Keisuke Honda and Adem Ljajić while revealing Robinho's imminent departure.

Director Adriano Galliani confirmed AC Milan are looking to sell Robinho to Santos, though stated there was yet to be an economic agreement reached with the Brazilian club. The sale of the 29-year-old attacker will be a welcome one for the rossoneri, with Robinho having been on the fringes over the last couple of seasons. He made only 11 starts in the last campaign, and it makes sense for Milan to sell and free up some funds.

Such funds could be spent signing Adem Ljajić from Fiorentina, with Galliani revealing his team's interest in the winger. Ljajić had an outstanding past season with the viola, with rumours suggesting he could be closer to pulling on the rossoneri shirt than Galliani has been letting on. According to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, personal terms have already been agreed.

Finally, Milan may also look to land CSKA Moscow's Keisuke Honda, though any move wouldn't happen until the next transfer window. Galliani implied that they'd try and hold out until Honda's contract expires in January, though with other clubs reportedly interested -- and CSKA almost certainly willing to accept a cut-price fee to make some money on their star attacking-midfielder -- there's the risk that any such transfer could be hijacked this summer.
