that's a question of economy. For example Bayern Munich also wanted to be one of the best teams in europe (what they are) but in an economic healthy way. But take a look at the nations where the superstars play and compare it with germany:
(in former) Italy: Ok, football is also here in Germany sports #1, but the italians are absolutely crazy about football. So it is (was) easier to get investors. For example the boss of Fiat had been patron of the Juventus Turin. And who else put his money into a football club might Elton know better than me.
England: In England you can buy a football team (but I don't know how exatly this works). So some russian billionaires who don't know what to do with their money put it in these clubs. Once Uli Hoeness said, if Abramowitsch had to pay one billion to win the UEFA champions league he would do it. Or look at Manchester City which had always been a mid ranked team. Now they are standing on top of the Premier League because of a russian patron.
Spain: The both top teams are Barca and Madrid. Each team has outstanding debts of about half a billion €. Something like this is not possible in Germany. If you have so much outstanding debts in this amount, you get no license for the 1. or 2. Bundesliga. Just some years ago this nearly happened to Borussia Dortmund (it was really close). And the arrears of Dortmund had been ridiculous in comparison to Madrid or Barca.
That's why never a non german player with the class of Kaka, Ronaldo or maybe Messi will play for a Bundesliga club. It has not so much to do with the invest in the youth. That had another background. Here in germany we were used to be succesful with our national team. But after the Euro '96 the national team became bad (in fact: the years between 1996 and 2006 had been hard). The low point had been the euro 2000 when germany had to drive home after the group stage. And one reason for this was that the german clubs bought players (most of them from eastern europe) instead of developing the youth.
So after the euro 2000 the DFB instructed the clubs to setup professional centres for the youth. The first result had been Podolski and Schweinsteiger. And in former nearly no U21 national player found his way to the Bundesliga. As I said the clubs preferred to buy players in comparison to develop a young own player. Now look at the german U21 which won the euro 2009. I guess you already heard of the one or the other player:
