      Juventus.com takes a look at the players who have worn both the black and white of Juventus and blue and red of Barcelona

      Martin Caceres

      The versatile Uruguayan defender, who will miss out on Saturday’s final through injury, joined Barcelona from Villarreal in 2008 but found first-team football hard to come by, making just 13 La Liga and three Champions League appearances with the Nou Camp outfit.

      This prompted a successful loan spell with Juventus in 2009 before he eventually returned - via Sevilla - in 2012. He has gone on to make 71 Serie A starts and feature in 12 Champions League games for the Bianconeri.

      Gianluca Zambrotta

      The attacking full-back brought an end to a seven-year spell in the black and white stripes in 2006 after making 217 Serie A appearances and scoring seven goals. During his two seasons in Spain, he figured in 58 La Liga games, finding the net on three occasions, and appeared 13 times in the Champions League.

      Lilian Thuram

      A tough-tackling defender and World Cup winner with France, Thuram joined the Bianconeri from Parma in 2001, playing 144 Serie A matches (scoring once) and featuring 45 times in the Champions League.

      In 2006, following five years with Juventus, Thuram moved to Spain, where he saw out his professional career by playing 41 La Liga games for the Blaugrana.

      Zlatan Ibrahimovic

      The mercurial Swedish frontman’s first taste of life in Italy came whilst wearing the colours of Juventus, for whom he scored 23 goals in 70 Serie A appearances between 2004 and 2006.  

      He spent just a solitary campaign at the Nou Camp, in 2009/10, during which he bagged 16 strikes in 29 La Liga games and also weighed in with four Champions League goals.

      Edgar Davids

      A combative midfielder who earned the affections of the Bianconeri faithful during seven seasons in Turin, Davids moved to Barcelona on loan in 2004, having signed off in the black and white stripes following 159 Serie A appearances and 48 Champions League matches.

      Playing for fellow countryman Frank Rijkaard, Davids was regarded as the catalyst for a revival in Barcelona’s fortunes, which saw them climb from midtable to secure a second-placed finish behind Valencia.  

      Thierry Henry

      The explosive French forward initially started out on the wing, where he was deployed whilst at Juventus in 1999, contributing three goals in 16 Serie A appearances.

      He truly rose to prominence during seven goal-filled seasons at Arsenal, who sold him to Barcelona in 2007, where he scored 35 times in 80 La Liga appearances and eight in 26 Champions League games.

      Juan Pablo Sorin

      The Argentine, who plied his trade as a left-sided full-back or midfielder, enjoyed brief spells with both clubs, first signing for Juventus from Argentinos Juniors in 1995.

      After two Serie A appearances he was on the move again, spending time at River Plate, Cruzeiro and Lazio before arriving in Barcelona, where he appeared 15 times in La Liga, scoring one goal.

      Michael Laudrup

      Four years, 102 Serie A appearances and nine European Cup starts for the Great Dane, who scored 16 in the league and six in Europe during his four years with the Old Lady, between 1985 and 1989.

      He completed a switch to Turin following a successful five seasons at the Nou Camp, where he hit 49 goals in 167 La Liga games.
