New Real Madrid signing Hamit Altintop: Signing for Madrid was my biggest goal

The Turkish international has stated that his move to the La Liga giants has always been his target in football

Real Madrid new signing Hamit Altintop has declared that signing for the club was his biggest goal, but he is currently focused on returning to fitness in time for Turkey in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Belgium on June 3.

The midfielder, who has been playing for Bayern Munich since 2007 signed a four-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side earlier this week.

Altintop has endured a frustrating campaign with the Bavarian outfit, struggling for fitness at times while falling out of favor with former Bayern coach Louis van Gaal.

However, the 28-year-old is looking to put his problems behind him when he completes his dream move to Madrid in the summer.

"Everyone knows that playing for Real Madrid was my biggest goal. I will do everything possible to succeed here. I am very happy, I'm lucky [to join Real Madrid]," the versatile player told reporters, according to Marca.

Altintop will now turn his attention to regaining fitness for Turkey's Euro 2012 qualifier versus Belgium on June 3, with the midfielder currently sidelined with a back injury but hoping to regain fitnes.

"The injury I have is not small and for this reason, I am concentrating on trying to recover for the match against Belgium," he added.

Turkey are currently sitting in third place on nine points, one behind Belgium with Germany leading the group.
