8. Gaizka Mendieta: When Mendieta signed for Lazio, many European clubs were following him, especially Real Madrid. Lazio used to pay him €60M, which made him the most expensive player in the history of football back in 2001.

9. Iván Helguera: After starting his career at Albacete in the Spanish Segunda División, Iván was quickly noticed by Roma and Real Madrid. However, he decided to make a move to Italy.

10. José Manuel “Pepe” Reina: Reina’s best and more regular performances came in the South of Italy with the Napoli jersey. His charisma and leadership in and out of the pitch make him a world-class goalkeeper.
