Skilful Portuguese international who is at home down either the left or right wing. Figo has a powerful shot but more often makes his mark as a provider than a scorer. Has been likened to Johan Cruyff and he is considered one of the finest players in the world. Endless stamina and can thoroughly bamboozle the best of defenders with his dribbling. In July '00, he moved to Real Madrid for world record $56.1 million.
