Luis Figo
Club:Real Madrid
Position:Midfielder

Luis Figo is one of the most expensive footballers in the world.

After Euro 2000 he signed for Spanish giants Real Madrid for a then world record fee of 40m, a figure since surpassed by Zinedine Zidane's move to the same club.

Following his success at Euro 2000 and with Real, Figo was named European Footballer of the Year for 2000.

Last year he received the ultimate accolade - being named Fifa's World Player of the Year.

His main attributes are a lethal free-kick and the ease with which he can drift past defenders.
