Look at the table above and you can understand why Real Madrid is currently considered the strongest Spanish football club. They gather all the brightest faces in their squad with numerous records that these brilliant footballers have achieved in their careers. 

Starting the list with Raúl González Blanco, who is currently a football manager of Real Madrid Castilla (the reserve team of Real Madrid). He has had such a long time sticking with Real Madrid, from his youth career, senior career, until now when he became the manager of the club’s reserve squad. Raúl started playing as a professional striker for The Whites in 1994 until 2010. He holds the record for most overall appearances for this club. Raúl played a total of 741 games as a Real Madrid player and scored 323 goals, which is the second-highest goalscorer, after Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Raúl González Blanco

Sergio Ramos is the Real Madrid player who made the most international caps for the national football team during his time playing for Real Madrid. He spent 16 years with the club (from 2005 to 2021) and also made an impressive number of appearances (671) with 101 goals. He is now playing for Ligue 1 club PSG. 

Sergio Ramos

Luis Figo is the first Real Madrid player who won the prestigious award by FIFA, which is FIFA World Player of the Year, in 2001, the second year after he joined this club. Despite his retirement in 2009, he is also considered one of the all-time best Portuguese players. 

Luis Figo

Cristiano Ronaldo, as one of the best footballers in the world now, had nine years playing for Real Madrid. This Portuguese player is also the one who made the most records during his time in Real Madrid. CR7 is extremely successful in bringing the most goals for Real Madrid, in one season, one league season, and even of all-time. He is also the first Real Madrid player to win the FIFA Ballons d'Or award four times, in 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017. 

Cristiano Ronaldo

We all witnessed the world record transfer fee of Cristiano Ronaldo from Man United to Real Madrid at that time in the 2009-10 season (€94 million). However, Gareth Bale broke that record in 2013. He was transferred to Real Madrid for a fee of €100.8 million. He is not only successful in his club career, including Real Madrid, but also one of the key members of the Wales national football team. 

Gareth Bale

Who is the best Real Madrid player in the 2020-21 season?

There is no doubt that forward Karim Benzema is the best player of Real Madrid in the recent season. He has played for this Spanish club since 2009 and proved how he deserved many of his individual awards. Karim was appointed as the captain of Real Madrid for several matches during the 2020-21 season, and he successfully led the club to numerous honors. 

He found the opponents’ nets 30 times and assisted eight goals for his teammates within 45 games in all competitions this season. This Frenchman also scored 21 goals for Real Madrid in the 2020-21 La Liga, ranking second just behind legend Lionel Messi with 28 goals. Karim’s passing accuracy was kept over 85%, leading him to the Man of the Match 10 times.
