Young fans of Real Madrid may actually think that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the history of the club. There is no doubt he is up there with the best, but there is one man who was better than him. To discover who the master is, take a look at five best legends in Los Blanco’s history.

They include;

5. Iker Casillas: 1999-2015

Iker Casillas is, without doubt, the best goalkeeper in Real Madrid history. Since his first game for the Los Blancos, the Spaniard was a different class. He won La Liga 5 times, Champions League 3 times, UEFA Super Cup twice and FIFA World Cup once. He is now playing his final days in Portugal with FC Porto.
