The Top Five Foreign Players That Have Ever Played For Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most successful football clubs in the world.
They have a long and illustrious history, and they continue to face challenges on all fronts each season.
The Camp Nou has hosted some of the finest players in the game’s history.
Barcelona has always had a good blend of indigenous and foreign players. They have constantly featured some of Spain’s best players.
Many Barcelona players were among the starting lineup for the Spanish team that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique, and Carles Puyol were all Barcelona players at the time of the World Cup final.
La Masia in Barcelona has continually produced some of the game’s best players.
But they’ve also been able to bring in some outstanding foreign players, whose contributions to Barcelona’s success cannot be overstated.
Without further ado, here are five of the best foreign players that have ever represented Barcelona.
#5 Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon) FC Barcelona against Bayern Munich – UEFA Champions League The ‘indestructible lion’ Samuel Eto’o is one of Barcelona’s finest attackers.
During his time with Mallorca, he drew the notice of Barcelona.
In 2004, the Catalans paid PS24.3 million for his talents, and he proved to be a signing that was well worth the money.
Eto’o was a complete number 9 who was quick, technically proficient, and strategically astute.
He was capable of scoring a variety of goals and appeared unaffected in the face of adversity.
Eto’o scored a total of 130 goals in 199 games for Barcelona.
He was the key striker of Barcelona’s 2009 continental treble-winning team, scoring in two Champions League finals.
Barcelona’s decision to pay PS59 million and send Samuel Eto’o the opposite way to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic later that summer perplexed fans.
Eto’o’s stay at Barcelona lasted five years, during which he won three La Liga crowns and two UEFA Champions League trophies.
Pep Guardiola’s decision to sell him is still regarded as one of his worst management mistakes.

Suarez deserved to leave the club as a hero, despite being shown the exit door in an unceremonious manner.
By the time Liverpool came knocking, he had established himself as a recognized goalscorer at Ajax.
Suarez joined Barcelona after ripping it up in the Premier League for the Merseysiders and collecting the European Golden Shoe in 2014.
He was a member of the ‘MSN’ (Messi, Suarez, and Neymar) at Barcelona, which went on to become one of the most dominant offensive trios in the game’s history.
At Barcelona, the Uruguayan international made 283 games in all competitions, scoring 198 goals and assisting on 113 occasions.
Before joining Atletico Madrid in 2020, he earned four La Liga titles, one UEFA Champions League trophy, four Copa Del Reys, and two Supercopas de Espanas with Barcelona.
On this day in 2014, Luis Suárez joined Barcelona.
What was the finest of his 198 goals for the club?
