2. Andrea Pirlo
Andrea Pirlo, like Seedorf, failed to win a trophy during his time at Inter, but he quickly made up for the lost time when he joined AC Milan following his transfer in 2001. As a result, he is among AC Milan's most famous players.
Ten trophies were won during his ten-year spell at the club, including two Serie A crowns and two Champions Leagues. He went on to have even more success at Juventus, and he was also a significant member of Italy's World Cup-winning squad in 2006.
Ronaldo signed with Internazionale in 1997 for a then-world-record cost of $80 million. He stayed there for five years and even went on to win the Ballon d'Or in the process. However, injuries caused him to lose his playing career in the early stages.
After eleven years, he was approached by AC Milan and presented as a somewhat tired but still brilliant player. Even though he was able to play for both teams, an injury forced him to retire from his second season with the Rossoneri. Nevertheless, he is among the players who played for both Milan teams.
Despite the drama that can be caused afterwards, some players played for Inter Milan and AC Milan. Those players were often involved in big-money moves that lured them to move to their city's rivals.
