Victor Lindelof says that having competition can help him improve.

Manchester United

has been one of the most active sides in the transfer market, and one of their signings was Real Madrid’s high-profile defender

Raphael Varane

, which can be bad news for the Red Devils’ experienced center-back

Victor Lindelof

, but the Sweden international has commented on the matter, insisting that having competition in a club like Manchester United is normal and he sees it as a positive thing.

he told


of Varane's arrival in Manchester:

"It’s great, I play in one of the world’s biggest clubs and they have very good players.

"We will have a competitive situation and I only see it as positive that we have got a good player in the squad."

Despite embracing the competition for a first-team place, the Swedish defender admits that although he has recovered from his old back injury, he would not be able to play a lot of games for the Red Devils.

"I have played a lot the last two years and last year I had big problems with my back and played with pain.

"My back feels good now, there will probably be no problems, but I do not think I will play 50, 60 matches."

Lindelof is also excited about other players who will be playing at Old Trafford this season, especially

Cristiano Ronaldo

, who has returned to his former club with so much to prove, alongside

Jadon Sancho

, who was the Red Devil’ first big signing in the recent transfer window.

He added on Ronaldo:

"Of course, you feel it, it is clear there is a very good atmosphere in the club and everyone is looking forward to getting him into the team. It will be fun and I think he will add a lot.

"I think the squad looks very good. It feels good, we have a good atmosphere in the team and the Premier League is always a tough league. 

"But we will do everything we can to win the title. That is the goal."
