Bundesliga Champ, Turkish midfielder Nuri Sahin has become the new Real Madrid acquisition. He signed up a six-year contract and left Dortmund (the recently crowned Bundesliga Champions). It seems that the Los Blancos is not on a cash strapped season and there’s no ending of player spending. Last season, they have signed up several players for a multi million deals and that’s not to include the multi awarded coach Jose Mourinho.
Sahin is known to be a master at free kicks and had an impressive record sheet under his shoe. In fact, he became the youngest player to ever played and score in the Bundesliga at the age of 16 years. Sahin’s addition will augment the midfield area along side Xavi. He added that the reason he is leaving Dortmund is because of Mourinho and the opportunity to play at a prestigious club.
Real Madrid was able to salvage the season by winning the Copa del Rey against archrival Barca, ending a two seasons trophy drought. But Barca took a more aggressive stand by ousting them at the Champions League semifinals that resulted in both teams lodging complaints to FIFA.
