Best Real Madrid Players of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Italian club Juventus and the Portugal national team.

Of course, he always goes to the well, and pull Real Madrid out of trouble. Great shooting ability, one of the best free kick techniques, dancing and mesmerizing feet, physique of a perfect athlete, jumps higher than an average basketball player, bullet header, makes Ronaldo a vital, crucial and the important player of Real Madrid. And he has lost his dribbling and free kick ability a bit. But every one he's gonna work harder to produce a better result for the team and for individual awards. Man United made Ronaldo a complete Attacker and Real Madrid made him a Complete Athlete

He has the record of highest total goals scored by a madrid player till now in a season in all competitions with 60 goals in the year 2011-12 and he even has the record for highest la liga scorer for a season for madrid till now. He is the star of highest club transfer deal till now! His style of playing, ball control, free kicks, long ranged goals, everything sets him far more apart than other madrid players till now! He is the best!

Absolutely the most gifted athlete on the planet, second would be the NBA's Michael Jordan. Never has their been a more dynamic, complete footballer to ever play the game. He truly is magical in the pace, movement and shear explosiveness with the ball. Impossible to compete in a 1v1 with any player to ever walk on the pitch. Mesmerising to watch.

He is the most accomplished player. Real Madrid was no where inspire of hiring best player from all over the world. To name a few there were ronaldo brazilian zidane David Beckham ronaldino. It was dream X11 but practically no where. After arrival of C.Ronaldo real madrid have become best team in the world. Two champoions league title... la liga.. real madrid has become most sought team in the world because of C ronado

2 Zinédine Zidane

Zidane is my legend, has the best control and skills his shots are good and he is loyal to real madrid and he proved it when he became assistant to carlo ancelotti and overall I think he is the best midfielder that ever played he is even a role model for pirlo as he passed on his kit number to him in juventus after he left and he also influenced ozil and he is nuri sahins legend and we know that because sahin chose number 5 because zizou wore it before him and you can see a video of sahin when he was small going to zidane on the pitch after a dortmund vs madrid match. The most elegent mid ever

His technique was the best in the world, maybe the best in footballs history, and his skills with the ball, control of the ball and his vision and understanding of the game were on another level. He was not especially fast, but he was strong, body balance great, his finishing was great with left and right foot. The best all-rounder ever.

The greatest player of all time, the goals that he scored was some of the best that I have ever seen like when he scored against byern 04 in the CL final 2002. Also his skills and his passes created goals not only for him but for his teamates. I don't see how Cristiano Ronaldo can be the greatest real madrid player because he has never inspierd hi coutry to a world cup. Zinedine Zidane did.

He is not only my favorite player he is also one of la liga's greatest player. Not only it is enjoyable to watch him play it is fun to copy his style to. And I think can dribble past anybody evan if that somebody is the best defender in the world!

3 David Beckham David Robert Joseph Beckham is an English retired professional footballer. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national team, for which he held the appearance record for an outfield player until 2016.

Many are envious and jealous of Becks life and they hate and diss him for it but let's be honest... the player is awesome! He might not have incredible pace or speed but he was always doing his job well enough to leave the clubs he played for as a proud champion! Not many players can do that!

People have this wrong theory that beckham was of no use at real. He was one of the clubs key players.

He was always overrated, no team player, maybe a few long shots at the goal.

No matter how hard you try to bend it, you can't bend it like beckham

4 Raúl González Blanco

Certainly not the best player that has been seen at Real Madrid but my vote goes to him due to the fact that he pretty much symbolises them. A legend of Spanish football.

There has been no other player to wear the Galacticos Jersey who deserves a stand at the Bernabeu as well as a retired no. 7 Jersey than this legend. He's the best striker I've ever witnessed; killer instinct and all... I don't respect any other player more than Raùl... The name of the team should be called Raùl Madrid.
-PROF-

This is the best player I think during 20 years in european cups. He is the best known El Siete. I think 6 place is not enough.

His success speaks for itself! Nobody else has been as faithful and trustful!

5 Iker Casillas Iker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Porto and the Spain national team as a goalkeeper.

He's the core of my Madridismo heart. He's the one who got me into football, into Spanish NT, into Real Madrid. He's the heart and the soul of the team. He literally dedicate his entire life to this team. On the highest high, on the worst and lowest, he's always there. Others come and go, but he remains there. And he took Raúl's role as the team captain really great. I love Iker Casillas so much, I can't even began to explain why! Hala capitán! Hala Casillas! Hala Madrid!

Iker Casillas devoted his life to Madrid. He literally gave Real every trophy possible and the Spanish National Team as well. He is a true legend and should never be forgotten. Enough said.

He's the only one. He's the reason of my fallin in love with Real Madrid. When I saw Real Madrid's game first time, I just couldn't get my eyes off him. He will always be a madridista, as me. Love you Casillas!

It's an awful and bad decision that Real Madrid sell Casillas to FC Porto. He's one of the greatest goalkeeper in the world and FC Porto isn't a suitable club for him!

6 Roberto Carlos Roberto Carlos da Silva Rocha, more commonly known simply as Roberto Carlos, is a Brazilian retired footballer.

He is best player of th world. His amazing skill and shut in goal...

By far the best shot taker of all time 11 12 foot curves UN heard of and persice as a sniper

Absolutely sensational full back

He scores goals from super far

7 Alfredo di Stéfano

Nobody else in this list compares to di Stefano. Look at his achievements, 8 League Titles & 5 European Cups - say no more. David Beckham achieved nothing with Real Madrid, he should have stayed with Man Utd. Di Stefano is not just a Real Madrid Legend but a Soccer Legend! One of the Greats!

Anyone who votes against Di Stefano to not be reals greatest player knows nothing about football...

Goal machine perfect striker strong and with a deadly finish and seriously beckham?

Should be ranked higher in my opinion, one of the all time greatest players to play the game.

8 Ronaldo Luis Nazário de Lima Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, commonly known as Ronaldo, is a Brazilian retired professional footballer who played as a striker. Popularly dubbed O Fenômeno, he is widely considered to be one of the greatest football players of all time.

All 10 player here are amazing but Ronaldo 9 Nazario is best and all time favourite amongst all. Most important thing Whenever he played, There is one man show, He can score from nothing and un believable skill, technique, speed and ability to score,
He is real Phenomenon
Even Great Pele said : Ronaldo is best, you cannot compare him to anyone for football
If anyone have a doubt then go see all these 10 players Match Videos
Only then You can understand
He is TRUE living Legend

How is it that Ronaldo is over Zidane in the Best footballer of all time thread when he is under him here? Don't get me wrong. Zidane was a brilliant footballer, but Ronaldo was RONALDO!

Ronaldo is a true legend and not only in Madrid also in Barcelona, AC Milan and inter Milan and he is the best their was and the best their ever will be, and he is also a two footed striker.

Ronaldo was a player full of talent. He was the best of his skillful, fast player kind. He also was truly amazing to watch. This is an absolute yes for Ronaldo being number one.

9 Ruud van Nistelrooy

His instinct to make goals was unique

He was a extreme

He desrves it

10 Sergio Ramos Sergio Ramos García is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Madrid and the Spain national football team.

The best center back in the game rite now..! Quick to win the hearts of Madrid fans due to passion to fight for the Jersey...

Plays very well, defensive is almost perfect! No doubt, is the best defender in the history of Real Madrid.

He is the best defender ever and is best to corners like Ronaldo

Passion, spirit, amazing skills, simply the best!

The Contenders
11 Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

Deserves to be in top 10, Won 2 champion leagues in 3 years, scored and assisted in both matches, scored the winner in Copa del rey, proved himself better than Benzema. Took Wales to quarter finals.

Gareth Bale is my favourite player and I think he should be at least 14th although he hasn't made an inspiration on Real Madrid like Neymar.

In Barclays it was easier but in la liga it's harder because Spain only takes good players

Bale should be in a higher place than 17 anyway he's the newest real Madrid player but he's still sick!

Bale should be way higher he's amazing at free kicks and has great speed should be below Ronaldo

12 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Arsenal. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world. Özil plays mostly as an attacking midfielder, but can also be deployed as a winger.

He is responsible or involved with every goal Real score. A Scholes like figure, always has an idea when he gets the ball

Football with brains, it is supposed to be like this. He has the perfect touch.

If you summed up Real Madrid's midfield in one word, that word would be Ozil.

Mesut Ozil and Di Maria have assisted more than half of Ronaldo's Real Madrid Career goals

13 Ferenc Puskas Ferenc Puskás was a Hungarian footballer and manager, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.

Probably the most underrated player ever in the history of this game. Puskas's record speaks for himself. A true hero and a legend and probably the best player ever. Maradona and Pele are known to us because they have had limelight from the media since the beginning and that is why names like Di Stefano and Puskas isn't a household name. I will request people to check Puskas's track record. _/\_

I'm giving my vote to Puskas, he doesn't deserve to be down as far as this, he's a legend and was a fine player in his time, decorated in silverware from all over the world. Ronaldo deservedly is at the top, no doubt.

How can he be ranked as low as 12. He has to be in the top 3 at least. Simply one of the greatest players in the history of the game

One of the best players to touch the game. he helped Real Madrid reach finals and win them scoring tons of hatricks along the way.

14 Luka Modric Luka Modrić is a Croatian footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Croatia national team.

He is one of the greatest playmaker of all time. Why? Because he had everything you need from a central midfielder.
He is a hardworker in both attack and defense. His vision on the pitch is the most amazing attribute about Luka. Without his intelligence, Ronaldo and Bale wouldn't make their goal chances if it weren't for Luka. He is also one of Real Madrids most important player, he played a big role for Los Blancos Champions League titles.

He is the best of all time! Watch the videos on youtube that are called: 10 best luka modric tricks!
My favourite player, good luck with the league that's ahead of you real madrid!

Modric is probably one of the best midfielders ever he is a very amazing player

Only player to kick Messi and Ronaldo out of the ballon dor slot

15 Luís Figo

Great team player I think. Him and Zidane did control the midfield offensively beautiful. Stable player, simple and direct. But yet I think he's very much greater than beckham (witch is a joke, did only make it worse. it was all buisness) Figo did have those celeb needs, like c ronaldo got. I am a big fan of him.

Perhaps not the best right winger of all time when it comes to pace, and dribbles but he fulfill all the needs with his technique and unique crosses... And icon in football, captain of the golden generation... And my 1st inspiration to love football

Real Madrid were the strongest they have ever been when they had Figo, Zidane, R.Carlos, Raul and Ronaldo
Playing together in that squad. Imagine if you could of had Modric and C.Ronaldo play then in that team! WOW

Very talented player yet very controversial. Let'all face it, he has contributed to football and he is a real legend. Mr. Controversial Figo, thank you so much for inspiring many youth in this beautiful game of football...

16 Kaka Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaká or Ricardo Kaká, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer and the Brazil national team.

He had a great skills during in milan. But, since he came to los merengues, his playing style has change. He can't perform many movement like in milan. But, I was great fans of kaka. So, I will keep support him! HaLa Madrid! HaLa Kaka!

He is a very big inspiration for me and he will always be the king. He should be given more oppurtunities at Madrid.

The most overrated player of Real Madrid, that's why I was so happy when he left the team.

The heaven has bless real with one of the best player in the 20th century

17 Hugo Sanchez Hugo Sánchez Márquez is a retired Mexican professional footballer and manager. A prolific goalscorer known for his spectacular strikes and volleys, Sánchez is widely regarded as Mexico's greatest-ever footballer, and one of the greatest players of his generation.

I see this list starts wiht most recent players, not my intention to degrade the playersbut new generations missed the old times RM games where amazing players like Sanchez made history in this team, he is tied wiht Di Stefano with 5 Pichichi Trophies each from the Madrid team, along with 5 ligas, 1 UEFA cup, 1 Copa del Rey, 2 Spanish Super Cups and 1 European Golden Boot, at least he should rank # 4 or 5 with Casillas.

This list is ridiculous if we are talking of all time why would you include players like pepe, benzema, kaka etc.

What should be top 10! Great player, best Mexican of all time

Best mexican player and madrid whit coolest goals

18 Zinedine Zidane Zinedine Yazid Zidane, nicknamed "Zizou", is a retired French footballer and current manager of Real Madrid.

How is he so low on the list? He is one of the greatest to ever play. Deserves to be higher.

Zinedine Zidane is already ranked!

19 Angel di Maria

He makes the team win most of the times with his nice passes to CR7 and he is fast and can shoot

An amazing argentine surpassing Messi and maradona

Best real player at the moment

He retired puyol simple

20 Karim Benzema Karim Mostafa Benzema is a French professional footballer of Algerian descent who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the France national team as a striker.

One thing I love about Real Madrid is that they don't allow only one player to over monopolize the team as a star record holder. Barca should learn from Bayern, Real, PSG. They've allowed Messi to be their everything with no competition. We initially thought Suarez will do something but he didn't last. Benzema on the other hand has worked so hard that he has at least taken Ronaldo from a spot which is the highest assist-maker in the team's history.

WOAH you didn't see Benzema coming in 44th place. He should be in the top 20!

HE is The Best player in the history of soccer In Moving In The Field

Best player ever in the history perfect touch..

21 Marcelo Vieira

Marcelo is a beast he is like the best lb in the world such a boss

22 Toni Kroos Toni Kroos is a German professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Spanish club Real Madrid and the German national team.

He is a great player he sets up amazing attacks that normally lead to goals

Kroos is such a great and smart player, without him CR7 and Bale can't score!

He deserves to be much higher in the ranks

Kroos is not that good as James or Modric

23 Raphael Varane Raphaël Xavier Varane is a French professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for Spanish club Real Madrid and the France national team.He previously played for French club Lens and, ahead of the 2010–11 season, began training with the senior team and appeared on the bench in several league ...read more.

He's a fantastic part of real. he helped france win the world cup. Ronaldo can't do it at all.

24 Fernando Hierro

Hierro was my favorite player back in the day. His passing skills matched Pirlo and his defensive presence was equivalent to that of Thiago Silva. His leadership skills were impeccable. Top 10 all time in my opinion.

I'm surprised he isn't in the top 10, his leadership, passing skills, defensive lecture of the game, ability to score lot of goals (it's the third most scoring defender of ALL TIME! only behind Pasarella and Koeman) he has to be on the top ten

He's a legendary player, I never have sean a player with his dignity and pride

Wonderful captain and great player

25 Gonzalo Higuain Gonzalo Gerardo Higuaín is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Italian club Juventus.

Is a bomber. You just need to pass the ball in the penality area and he is deadly

I like you gonzalo higuain
