Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has said that the prospect of competing with Sergio Ramos for a place in Luis van Gaal’s team does not worry him at all.

The Red Devils have dug their feet in telling Real Madrid that the only way they will sign David de Gea this summer is if they allow Sergio Ramos to move to Old Trafford.

“There is always competition at Manchester United,” Smalling said.

“When I signed there were five centre backs already here.

“I had to work hard to get past them. At this club you are always going to be compared with the best and you always play with the best.”
