Despite what blockchain explorers might show you, The network format for Bitcoin transactions contains no addresses.

Transactions can have multiple inputs and multiple outputs. Each output has a locking script. An address is a convenient abstraction of a script. Thus a transaction can have at least two and sometimes thousands of associated addresses.

Each input and each output for common types of transaction are only associated with one address.
