Milan chief Adriano Galliani has warned fans to not expect the imminent arrivals of Adem Ljajic and Keisuke Honda.
The two players have been linked with the Rossoneri this summer, but the Vice-President is remaining cautious.
“Honda and Ljajic are different cases,” the official told Sky Sport Italia.
“Ljajic is not possible because Robinho hasn’t left, while there is a good chance that Honda can arrive in January and so we’ll wait for him then.”
The Japanese midfielder could be signed on a free transfer at the start of next year seeing as his CSKA Moscow contract expires at the end of December.
Serbia international forward Ljajic, meanwhile, has 12 months left on his agreement with Fiorentina.
Robinho was being heavily linked with a return to former club Santos, but that move has now fallen through.
