It’s going to be the case with any list compiling the top 20 players in La Liga, the majority filled up by players from the top two in the country—Barcelona and Real Madrid.
It’s also interesting to note that while the Premier League has far more of a global audience than La Liga, the best players in the world seem to ply their trade in Spain’s top division.
Furthermore, the majority of the complied list features Spanish-born players, something which should be taken into account considering the country’s current purple patch in international football.
The best players in the world all long to play for Barcelona and Real Madrid and, as has been mentioned, their players make up a large percentage of the top players in Spain right now. However, the lesser teams who also strive to make up those last two remaining Champions League spots also possess some of the country’s great talents among their ranks.
A league so troubled by financial difficulty, yet one so awash with talent—some of which are the greatest in the world at the moment.
