There are reports CSKA Moscow are refusing to sell Keisuke Honda to Milan because his replacement is injured.
A crunch meeting was held this evening between Milan representatives, Honda’s brother and the Russian club in Moscow.
However, Sky Sport Italia claim the encounter was a desperate disappointment for the Rossoneri in their bid to take the player straight away.
CSKA Moscow pointed out Georgi Milanov picked up an injury and therefore they cannot spare Honda for the next six months.
The move is only postponed until January 2014, as the Japanese international will be a free agent on December 31 when his contract expires.
