Mi­lan vice-pres­i­dent Adri­ano Gal­liani di­vulged more de­tails of the deal yes­ter­day, af­ter first an­nounc­ing the trans­fer on Wed­nes­day.

Gal­liani says “now it’s sure that he’s com­ing. For a while I was ly­ing. Honda will be in Mi­lan on De­cem­ber 30. He signed a 3½-year con­tract, through 2017. We only have his sport­ing rights, not his im­age rights.”

Honda ar­rives on a free trans­fer from CSKA Moscow and will wear No 10.
