Rome:

Japanese international Kaisuke Honda on Saturday described his transfer to AC Milan from CSKA Moscow as a "dream come true" and promised to achieve "something special" in Italy.

"Milan are a legend, it's a dream come true," Honda told the Milan Channel television station on his arrival at the city's airport ahead of his official presentation on Wednesday.

"I know the situation, I know that everyone is expecting a lot from me. For my part, I believe I can do something special. I am confident."

The 27-year-old midfielder, who will be crucial to Japan's hopes at the World Cup later this year, spent three years in Moscow before agreeing a deal with Milan which will take him through to June 2017.

He will wear the number 10 shirt at the Italian giants who are currently just five points off the relegation places in Serie A.
