The Manchester United defender says that he is not worried about the possibility of the club signing the Spanish defender
For weeks, Manchester United have been hotly linked with a move for the Real Madrid man amidst reports that the world cup winner is itching for a move to Old Trafford due to irreconcilable differences with the club’s authorities. The Red Devils are willing to offer the player a lucrative contract and although his arrival will mean extra competition, Chris Smalling is confident that it will be a good thing for him and his club and added that he is not fazed by the rumours at all.
“I think it’s a case of where, at Manchester United, there’s always competition,” he told reporters. “Even when I signed [the fresh terms] there were five centre-backs who I had to work hard to get past.
“So I always knew I was going to be compared against the best because United can always challenge for the best and I’m up for that challenge.”
