========================================

The transfer of Germany World Cup midfielder SAMI KHEDIRA from Bundesliga club Vfb Stuttgart to Spanish juggernaut Real Madrid really should come as no great surprise to someone with a sense of history.

For decades now, REAL MADRID CLUB DE FOOTBALL have sought to strengthen their side with the acquisition of (WEST) GERMAN NATIONAL TEAM stars :

8 yrs (77-85) — 215 app, 41 goals — df – Ulif STIELIKE
5 yrs (96-01) —– 91 app, 0 goals —- gk – Bodo ILGNER
3 yrs (73-76) —– 85 app, 9 goals —- mf – Guenter NETZER
3 yrs (74-77) —– 84 app, 10 goals — mf – Paul BREITNER
2 yrs (88-90) —– 61 app, 13 goals — mf – Bernd SCHUSTER
3 yrs (07-10) —– 23 app, 0 goals —- df – Christoph METZELDER

The transfer of Khedira breaks no new ground for the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu but, rather, simply extends a long-standing tradition in the on-going pursuit of excellence at CF Real Madrid.
