Van Bommel eyes PSV return

AC Milan midfielder Mark van Bommel is considering a return to PSV Eindhoven when his contract runs out this northern summer.

The 34-year-old's future is up in the air after Milan revealed it would not renew the contracts of its ageing stars until after the season.

While the Netherlands international would like to remain at San Siro he admitted a return to PSV - where he played six seasons before leaving in 2005 - was a realistic alternative.

"I have got several options, but for me there are just two serious options - AC Milan and PSV," he told NOS.

"How big the chance is that I return to PSV? There is a chance, yes."

Van Bommel's agent, Mino Raiola, has already stated that the midfielder would accept a pay-cut to return to his homeland.

However, Raiola warned that any negotiations would be called off should PSV appoint Louis van Gaal as manager following his falling out with Van Bommel while they were at Bayern Munich.

"[PSV technical director] Marcel [Brands] has effectively confirmed the appointment of Louis van Gaal, albeit not in not in so many words," he said.

"He knows that a transfer will be impossible for Mark if Van Gaal is coach."
