This very eve Real Madrid have announced the signing of Hamit Altintop who, you may well remember, scored one of the sweetest volleys on record for Turkey against Kazakhstan in September of last year…
BOOF! As if we needed any half-baked excuse to re-post that little doozy. It just gets better and better with every watch.
For the record, Altintop has joined Madrid on a free after letting his contract with Bayern Munich dwindle down to nada and will be moving to the Bernabeu on a four-year deal.
Altintop will also become only the third player of Turkish heritage to have signed for Madrid, following in the relatively fresh footsteps of Mesut Ozil and Nuri Sahin.
