2 Zinédine Zidane

Best player ever, elegant, team player, efficient... And remember his goal against bayer leverkusen

He rocks and also he is a team player. I think he is friendly and kind he probably could beat any defender any day any time.

Zidane the best player and king of football. It is so entertaining to watch him play. Amazing skill and first touch

Un Real

3 Raúl González Blanco

I started watching football by 1992. By this time, Real Madrid was nothing but an old legend, under the shadow of Barcelona's "Dream Team". They didn't even play Champions League for many years, as only the Liga winners were allowed. And since the last European Cup in 1966 or so, they just played a few semifinals and one final in 1981. As I said, AN OLD LEGEND, not much more.

Real Madrid started to be great again just when Raúl arrived to the team. He was always the solution for every match, didn't matter how bad or good the team played through the years, didn't matter the better or worse players that surrounded him, at the end Raúl always had to be there in every single match to make the impossible within a flash and make Madrid win 99 out of 100 times. Even in the worse situations, we knew Raúl could do suddenly something out of nothing and win a match.

Suddenly it was possible to defeat an Italian team or a German team. I swear by God that this was ...more

this man has more history than any other player so I think he should be 1

Mister Raul Madrid! Incredible player

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

4 Ronaldo Luis Nazário de Lima Ronaldo Luis Nazário de Lima

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!

raul is my hero, but ronaldo has won everything everywhere he has played.

This is Real Ronaldo!
completely Best Player n true legend!

This is the REAL RONALDO!
Should be ranked number 1

5 Alfredo di Stéfano

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

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!

Di Stefano, obviously.

emm.. Beckham??? HAHA!? - alexthecat

He's the best alongside gento he's way better than anh modern time great no way anyone comes close to him

6 Iker Casillas 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 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!

Awesome player best keeper ever no other goalie compares only buffon and van der sar are near him in skill

I think the only keepers in the world that can match him are buffon, petr cech and victor valdes

Valdes is no match compared to casillas, right now the closest player to him is neuer.

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.

7 David Beckham David Beckham

"ya son its beckam ya! " well he's a beast and I need to take up room

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 might not be as good as he was,but he's still beckham

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

Best free kicker

9 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil

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

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

He is zidane 2

He is bad I have no clue why he is in the top 10

10 Ruud van Nistelrooy

His instinct to make goals was unique

He was a extreme

He desrves it

The Contenders

11 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.

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...

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

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

Passion, spirit, amazing skills, simply the best!

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.

His very good hahaaha

13 Ferenc Puskas 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

The best he is a legend!

14 Kaka 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.

Hi is the best but need more time to prove him self like he did in milan and he is not in postion he played in milan

He need to play like he did in milan and score more goals as well

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!

best! - casuit20

15 Karim Benzema 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.

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

The best player karim

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

Best striker ever for real Madrid

16 Gareth Bale 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.

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

Should be in the top 10, fast, header, free-kicker, he has everything, great player.

17 Xabi Alonso Xabi Alonso Xabier "Xabi" Alonso Olano is a Spanish footballer who plays for German club Bayern Munich as a central midfielder.

Right now the most important man in the team...

18 Hugo Sanchez 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.

He was incredible he was a star player of club and country he was amazing should be well higher not only was he great in real life he is also unbelievable on fifa

Why isn't he higher in the list

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

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.

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

He controls the defending mid field side

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

Without Modric... Ronaldo, Benzema, and Bale simply don't score

He should be in top 5

20 Pepe

One crazy player that does most of the job in defense. Best center defender in the world. He needs to keep calm sometimes but he is just perfect.

He is down rated by FIFA, but he is on of the best if not the best defender in the world!

Love the way he tackles... The Killer Tackler.

The f2 should help him

21 Gonzalo Higuain 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

22 Fernando Hierro 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.

He is a real legend one can't think of. he is a solid defender and a good character and a great player. he is a captain by example and he scores and create from center back. he can played in center back and in mid field. great personality. my best ever defender. I like and love him

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

Wonderful captain and great player

23 Santiago Bernabeu

He is the original superstar of Real Madrid

He should be in top 5 for starting as a player then transforming the Club to a European powerhouse being real president during our back to back European cups in the 50s

It's a stadium

24 Arjen Robben Arjen Robben Arjen Robben is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for German club Bayern Munich and is the captain of the Netherlands national team.

Robben did play for Real, he moved from Chelsea and then we sold him to Bayern

Why should be in top ten.

He was stunning at Real,i enjoyed every game he played

KID, ROBBEN DID PLAY FOR MADRID FOR 2 YEARS 2007-2009!
