Van Bommel signs new deal with AC Milan

Mark van Bommel does not have to start a search for a new club this summer. The midfielder made a move last winter from Bayern Munich to AC Milan. The club released the news this Tuesdaynight that his contract will be extended until the summer of 2012.

Van Bommel is currently working on his third foreign adventure. He left PSV Eindhoven in 2005 to play for Barcelona and after only one year he moved on setting course to Germany, where he would be playing for four and a half year. Milan took immediate action, when van Bommel said he was open to leave Bayern. The captain of the Dutch national team signed for six months and celebrated the Scudetto earlier this month.

Now Milan has expressed that van Bommel will also be under contract next season. The 68-time international has recently admitted that it was of great importance to keep playing for a top club, with his eye on Euro 2012. That will be his last trick as international. ”The contact with PSV has always been kept steady, till this day on. I’ve always said that one day I will return to the club, and I still feel that way. Although I have to admit, I have to be of value to the team. I won’t be taking it easier. On Euro 2012 I want to be at my top, because the story with the Dutch national team is not closed yet.”

”Alot of clubs have shown interest. But my point of view was easy: OR the whole picture had to be like I wanted it, on the highest level, OR i would have returned to PSV. If there would have not been an absolute topclub like AC Milan who wanted me, I probably would have been playing for PSV right now. That’s an option I’ve always kept open to myself and PSV would have loved to see me come. But when Milan came, the choice wasn’t hard to make. THAT’S where I wanted to go.”
