Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says David de Gea is not guaranteed the number one spot at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson has told David de Gea that despite his big-money move to Old Trafford he is not guaranteed the number one jersey.

Anders Lindegaard and Ben Amos impressed in United's 7-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders last night, proving that de Gea has plenty of competition.

"Obviously we have signed David de Gea as the main choice, I would imagine," said Ferguson.

"But Anders Lindegaard and Ben Amos have probably said to themselves they have an opportunity with Van der Sar retiring."

Former Atletico Madrid keeper de Gea has been assured of minutes in Saturday's friendly against Chicago.

"De Gea will play on Saturday against Chicago but they will all get their fair share of games and the decision on who starts the season will depend on how de Gea settles," added Ferguson.

The 20-year-old Spain under-21 international signed for United in a deal reported to be around £19m earlier this summer.
