Keisuke Honda: The midfielder has been linked with a move to AC Milan and Everto

Club general director Roman Babaev is aware of interest from AC Milan for the Japan international, while Everton have also been linked with a move.

But as it stands Honda, whose contract expires in January 2014, will remain a CSKA player until a club makes a formal approach for his services.

Babaev told Russian newspaper Sport Express: "[The situation] has not changed. Honda could be speaking to another club at the moment, because the rules allow it.

"But our position is clear. We are ready to let him go if we receive a reasonable offer.

"We are pleased that Milan are interested but we also have to be realistic. Yes, his expiring contract affects his market value but there is a limit as to how low we can go.

"We are not worried if he ends up leaving the club on a free transfer.

"It is a difficult decision to make - part ways with Honda now or keep him until his contract expires.

"We are interested to know how this progresses. The ball is in Milan's court now."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
