Real Madrid is the most successful club in soccer's history. They have won more titles in Europe than any other clubs. Of course, their players were among the greatest of all-time. This post is about my Top 10 ranking of greatest rightbacks in Real Madrid's history. But every fan has their favourites and opinions. The ranking is extremely subjective. Some player played in multi-positions. Sometimes, people would even argue about the position of each player considered. For this goalkeeper blog, I do not have this issue.
Chendo was a product of Real Madrid's academy. He played his entire career with Real Madrid between 1982 and 1998. He won 17 major trophies with the club.

Dani Carvajal went through Real Madrid's academy. In 2012, he was sold to Bayer Leverkusen. In his only season there, he established himself among the best fullback in Bundesliga.
