Luis Figo’s direct switch from Barcelona to Real Madrid will go down as the most iconic transfer in history. The Portuguese star swapped the Catalans for Los Blancos after five years at the Nou Camp in 2000.

Following the start of the new century, Luis Figo became the poster boy of the Real Madrid-Barcelona rivalry. His first El Clasico created an atmosphere that could have quailed the hearts of the bravest of men, as he endured incessant taunts and expletives throughout the 90 minutes.

Despite all the hatred they bore for Figo, the Barca faithful had to endure the miserable sight of him lifting the LaLiga title at the end of the same season.

Leaving everything else aside, Luis Figo does deserve applause for taking such a courageous decision and sticking with it till the end.
