Thiago Silva joined Milan from Fluminense in January 2009 but it was not until the following campaign that he made his Serie A debut, soon establishing himself as one of the best centre-backs in Italian football. Capped 13 times by Brazil, the 26-year-old has made 32 appearances this season.
The 34-year-old Van Bommel arrived in Milan on a free transfer in January after cancelling his contract with Bayern Munich. The former PSV Eindhoven and FC Barcelona player quickly became a key figure in the Rossoneri midfield playing 13 Serie A matches. He has been saying for months that he wanted to stay in Milan, and it is good move for Massimiliano Allegri’s side to sign him for another season.
