"There is a great example of a team (who could not buy success)," warned the United manager. "It was called Sunderland and spent so much money that it was known as the Bank of England club. They didn't win anything and in the end they got themselves relegated.
"I am not saying that Real Madrid will get relegated but they will have plenty of problems with balance.
"I do not know how Pellegrini plans to pick his side because it has no balance. I told Ronaldo before he flew out that he will end up playing centre half because I don't think they have one."
