Keisuke Honda closing in on MLS move; sends heart-warming message to Milan fans

By Isak Möller -

Thanks to his goal against Bologna yesterday, Keisuke Honda will leave Milan with his head held high. In fact, the Japanese could be heading towards the MLS.

Honda’s contract will expire on June 30th, and he’s agreed with the club to not renew it. Instead, Corriere Della Sera reports that the midfielder is closing in on a move to MLS, where there are a few clubs interested.

Last season, under the management of Sinisa Mihajlovic, Keisuke Honda play a key role for AC Milan, acting as a leader on the pitch. However, this season Honda has spent most of his time on the bench. In fact, the midfielder has only started one season this season. Despite this, he showed his professionalism yesterday when coming on to help his side win the game.

Honda posted a message on Twitter to the Milan fans after the Rossoneri’s 3-0 win over Bologna, thanking for his time in the club:

“My dear Milan fans, thank you. It has been three challenging years, but here I’ve grown as a person. I will leave Milan after this season, but I can not wait to see you soon. I will not be a player, but I wonder how we will meet.”
