Best Real Madrid Players of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (born 5 February 1985) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Juventus and captains 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

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!

The best ever. Period. Used to make every one seem better when he was in the team. Played football with a languid pace that used to take your breath away. And, as is wont with nearly all geniuses, had a bit( ya, just a bit) of a mad streak.

3 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-

Raul Gonzales is The best madridista that has ever played football.
Best Spanish player!
Best striker!
Love You Raul!

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.

4 David Beckham David Robert Joseph Beckham is (born 2 May 1975) is an English former professional footballer, the current president & co-owner of Inter Miami CF and co-owner of Salford City.. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national ...read more.

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.

God of freekick. Bend it like beckham? Preety sure no man in the world can never and will never kick like him.

5 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!

8 League Titles, 5 European Cups and 1 Copa America..
Real Madrid best player ever and have the most silverware in Madrid...
Only Messi can beat his number of cup...
Way better than Penaldo...
Ronaldo is declining and gonna retire soon...

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?

6 Iker Casillas Iker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish retired professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper. Popularly dubbed "San Iker" for his ability to produce spectacular saves, Casillas is widely regarded to be one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.

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!

7 Roberto Carlos Roberto Carlos da Silva Rocha (born 10 April 1973), commonly known as Roberto Carlos, is a Brazilian former professional footballer who now works as a football ambassador. He started his career in Brazil as a forward but spent most of his career as a left back and has been described as the "most offensive-minded ...read more.

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

Best free kicker

8 Ronaldo Luis Nazário de Lima Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, commonly known as Ronaldo, is a Brazilian business owner, president of La Liga club Real Valladolid, and a retired professional footballer who played as a striker. Popularly dubbed in Portuguese O Fenômeno ("The Phenomenon"), he is widely considered one of the greatest ...read more.

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

He was a extreme

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.

Passion, spirit, amazing skills, simply the best!

I've seen the list and I'm really surprised by it having players like ozil,higuain and for me the best defender and the most important man in Real Madrid now is Sergio Ramos. El Capitan!
Maybe the best captain Real Madrid has ever had. He won us decima,undecima and duodecima.
#halamadrid

The Contenders
11 Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for English club Tottenham Hotspur 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!

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

12 Ferenc Puskas Ferenc Puskás (1 April 1927 – 17 November 2006) was a Hungarian footballer and manager, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and the sport's first international superstar. He scored 84 goals in 85 international matches for Hungary, played four international matches for Spain ...read more.

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

Simply the best player in rm history... Great speed, shoot power, dribbling, goal scoring skills... Complete player!

13 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Süper Lig club Fenerbahçe. Nicknamed "The Assist King", Özil is known for his technical skills, creativity, agility, and finesse.

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.

I enjoy watching him play amd think he is ranked as a high quality player in any team. He is the wizard of oz

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!

Play maker of all time

He should be in top 5

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 retired Brazilian professional footballer who played 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.

Nice player in the world

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.

People this is hugo comn now if you know soccer you know he is top 5.?

Becouse he is the best stricker that real has ever had scoring almost 300 goals in 8 yeras. He is one of the best...

18 Zinedine Zidane Zinedine Yazid Zidane, nicknamed "Zizou", (born 23 June 1972) is a is a French former professional football player who played as an attacking midfielder. He received many individual accolades as a player, including being named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1998, 2000 and 2003, and winning the 1998 ...read more.

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 retired puyol simple

He is the dangerous man

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!

Best player ever in the history perfect touch..

The best player karim

21 Marcelo Vieira
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 plays mainly as a central midfielder, but has also been deployed as a deep-lying playmaker in his career. Known for his vision, passing, creativity, crossing and set-piece ...read more.

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

His passing is unbelievable.

The second xabi alonso

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

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.
24 Raymond Kopa
25 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
