In the history of La Liga, just 11 players (Miguel Reina, Jesus Landaburu, Marcos Alonso Pena, Thiago Motta, David Villa, Luis Suarez, Arda Turan, Antoine Griezmann, Eusebio Sacristan, Bernd Schuster and Luis Garcia) have represented both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the past.

With 6 players making a direct money move from Barcelona to Atletico Madrid. They are Miguel Reina, Jesus Landaburu, Marcos Alonso Pena, Thiago Motta, David Villa and Luis Suarez.

Ever since the Spanish top-tier division was renamed La Liga in 2016 and to date, two players have made the move from Barcelona to Atletico Madrid.

In 2013, Atletico Madrid signed David Villa from Barcelona for 2013/2014 La Liga season.

That same season, David Villa won the La Liga for Atletico Madrid.

Villa partnered Diego Costa upfront, as Atletico Madrid won the La Liga and also eliminated Barcelona in the Champions League.

In 2020, Atletico Madrid signed Luis Suarez, another big name in world football from Barcelona.

Luis Suarez impressive performances and goals were vital, as Atletico Madrid continue to maintain their 4 points gap at the top of the table.
