5. Andres Iniesta
Having begun his Barcelona career as a youth-level player, Andres Iniesta is one of the biggest legends of the club. He made 674 senior appearances for the club until 2018, when he reached the end of his contract and joined Japanese club, Vissel Kobe, as a free agent. The 35-year-old is regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time, and his electric partnership with former teammate Xavi Hernadez made both Barcelona and the Spain national team one of the strongest teams in the history of world football.
The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner was always a winner at the Camp Nou as well. He lifted as many as 32 titles in 16 years at Barcelona, and is also the only player ever to be named the man of the match in a Champions League, Euro Cup, and World Cup final. He also won the UEFA Best Men’s Player award once this decade (in the 2010-11 season), and was also named in the FIFPro World XI eight times.
