Van Bommel has enjoyed a successful period in Milan, claiming the Serie A title last season and it is believed the club offered him a new deal for the 2012-13 campaign worth €2 million (£1.6m).

However, the defensive midfielder has opted to rejoin the side he made his name at, previously representing PSV between 1999 and 2005.

In a successful career now spanning 20 years, Van Bommel has also represented Fortuna Sittard and Barcelona.
