Manchester United new boy Raphael Varane admits there are some similarities between his new team and Real Madrid.
Varane signed from Real in the summer for a modest fee, considering he was entering the final year of his contract with the La Liga giants.
As he settles into life in Manchester and the Premier League, Varane spoke about the pressure of being at such a big club, where each defeat can be magnified into a crisis.
United take on Villarreal in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
"It's always hard to make comparisons like this," Varane told reporters.
"Big clubs are always wanting a lot of their players, they expect a lot from the players. There are a lot of demands on any player.
"I believe that it's fairly similar, I'd say. The hopes and demands and expectations at big clubs are always fairly similar.
"After a defeat or a draw, you know what it's like, it's always very negative when that happens. The key is to keep up good runs of results and be positive.
"That pressure you kind of live with it at big clubs but it's hard to say whether it's bigger in one or lesser in another. There is always a lot of expectation, for sure."
