The El Clasico is coming up and the rivalry between the two great teams Barcelona and Real Madrid is legendary. The two Spanish giants have won 55 La Liga titles between them with Real Madrid winning 32 of them and Barcelona winning 23. 

Players who have played for both these legendary clubs are few and far in between, however, players who have won the La Liga titles with both Real Madrid and Barcelona are extremely rare. Some famous players like Ronaldo Nazario and Javier Saviola have managed to play for both these clubs, but they have surprisingly not managed to win the League with both of them.

Ahead of the El Clasico, we take a look at 5 players who won the La Liga with both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

#1 Luis Figo

One of the greatest footballers of all time, Luis Figo’s transfer to Real Madrid from Barcelona in 2000 was one of the most controversial transfers of all time. Renowned for his creativity and having the ability to get past defenders, Figo is regarded as one of the greatest wingers of his generation.

The Portuguese superstar’s creativity can be seen by the fact that he is second on the list for the most assists in La Liga, only behind Lionel Messi. At his physical peak, Figo was a quick, elegant, highly skilful player with a dribbling ability that allowed him to frequently take on and beat defenders in one on one situations.

Capable of delivering pin-point set pieces, Figo also scored some crucial goals due to his powerful striking ability from distance and his accurate free-kicks. 

Luis Figo won two La Liga tiles each with Barcelona and Real Madrid. He also won the Ballon D’Or award in 2000.
