Breaking News: Mark Van Bommel open to a move to Tottenham

Ex-Bayern Munich captain, Mark Van Bommel, has made it clear that he will be open to a move to Tottenham in the up-coming summer transfer window if he is wanted by the London club. Van Bommel was a target for Harry Redknapp in the January transfer window but the Dutch midfielder opted for a move to AC Milan instead. Bommel might face Tottenham as part of Milan’s squad in the third week of February as Tottenham take on AC Milan in their season defining UEFA Champions League ‘Round of 16’ tie.

Van Bommel is a decorated player in his own right. He won the 2006 UEFA Champions League with Barcelona but shortly afterwards he moved to Bayern Munich where he has won numerous championships. Moreover, the Dutch defensive midfielder led Bayern Munich to the UEFA Champions League final last year after the German giants defeated Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals. Van Bommel has also been a permanent name in the Dutch national team starting lineup. This was evident when he started the FIFA World Cup final in June of 2010 in South Africa against the Spanish national team.

The 33 year old midfielder is well known for his ability to break up oppositions attacks. Van Bommel is an experienced footballer who started his career at Fortuna Sittard before securing a move to PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 1999. In his latest interview, Mark Van Bommel revealed that he was in contact with Tottenham in the January transfer window. He added that Tottenham are indeed one of his favorite clubs in the English Premier League.

Tottenham drew a connection with Van Bommel through their Dutch playmaker, Rafael Van Der Vaart, too. Van Bommel elaborated that Rafael had spoken to him about the club and the atmosphere at White Hart Lane during matches. Van Bommel is in the twilight of his career at the moment but a move to Spurs will be a convenient one for the Dutch man who will want to add the experience of English football to his CV before he retires from football.
