Done deal: Van Bommel to Barcelona

Going in opposite directions thru Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, 28-year-old Dutch international Mark Van Bommel has signed a three-year contract with Barcelona, unbelievably, on a Bosman free transfer. At the beginning of the season Philip Cocu joined PSV after a spate of years at the Nou Camp.

Van Bommel is the 17th Dutch player in recent history to join Barcelona. He is following Johan Cruyff, Ronald Koeman, Ronald and Frank de Boer, Edgar Davids, Giovanni van Bronkhorst and Phillip Cocu to a club which was called “Ajax-Barcelona” for a time in the 90’s.

Van Bommel will add strength and durability to Barcelona and will give better support to Ronaldinho and Deco going forward.

How often are you going to get your very own Frank Lampard on a free transfer?
