The eternal negotiation between Milan and Santos for the services of the Brazilian continues, and hopefully a resolution can occur soon.
Adem Ljajic has characteristics which interest Milan.
This is what Milan director Adriano Galliani said in the Gazzetta report posted above, hinting that the player could be the splash summer signing.
Ljajic improved tremendously last season with the Tuscan side, scoring 11 league goals and creating for his teammates. He could play as a second striker, left winger, or as a trequartista for Milan.

According to the transfer section in La Gazzetta, Milan has not only decided to keep Stephan El Shaarawy, but is also closer to making a formal offer for CSKA attacking midfielder Keisuke Honda.
Milan met with Keisuke Honda's agent to discuss plans to bring the Japanese player to Italy.
The idea is that a player must be sold before Honda talks can be taken seriously. One must think that Robinho's imminent departure will truly start the negotiations, as money from that transfer can be poured over to the Russian club for Honda.
