1.- Casemiro

Back when Zinedine Zidane arrived at Real Madrid for the first time as the manager, one of his biggest requests was to bring Casemiro back from Porto.

When they met for the first time, ‘Zizou’ told him to remain patient because a time would come when he would feature in every single match for the coach.

This player is the only reason Real Madrid managed to survive during the initial months of the season, he is currently irreplaceable.
