Guillem Balague, who works as a pundit and journalist for Sky Sports, named Real legend Iker Casillas as his goalkeeper. The current FC Porto shot-stopper spent 16 years at Los Blancos before his exit.

Chendo, who won seven La Liga titles at Real, was chosen at right back, while Balague preferred Marcelo to his predecessor, Roberto Carlos for the opposite flank.

His centre-back pairing consisted of a former Real captain and their current skipper, Fernando Hierro and Sergio Ramos, who are also both considered legends of the game in Spain.

The slick Fernando Redondo was chosen by Balague in central midfield, while two of the club's record scorers, Alfredo Di Stefano and Francisco Gento, were chosen on either wing.

Behind the strikers is the mercurial Zinedine Zidane, who, despite only winning one La Liga title, is considered among the greatest ever to wear the Real shirt.

Going with two forwards up front, there was no surprises when Balague chose two of arguably Real's greatest No. 7s of all time – Raul Gonzalez and their highest scorer in history, Cristiano Ronaldo.

What do you think of Balague's greatest Real XI of all time? Let us know in the comments section below.
