Mark van Bommel to play for AC Milan
Dutch international Mark van Bommel will be playing for AC Milan for the rest of the season. His current employer Bayern Munich confirmed the Dutch ace's transfer on Tuesday.
On the Bayern website, Van Bommel said "I leave FC Bayern with a heavy heart, but with my head held high. I’ve had four and a half wonderful and successful years here, and I’d expressly like to thank the club and the fans for that. FC Bayern will always occupy a big place in my heart."
Despite its earlier reluctance, Bayern agreed to the mid-season transfer after talks between Van Bommel and club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. He said the player's move was well-motivated and the club had agreed because of Van Bommel's great services to Bayern.
