Victor Lindelof has welcomed the arrival of Raphael Varane at the club even though it means stiff competition in defense.
The Frenchman arrived at the Manchester Club from Real Madrid this summer, adding to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's options at the back.
Lindelof, who has been a mainstay in the United defense alongside captain Harry Maguire, faces a battle to keep his number this coming season.
He is however ready to fight and says he understands what it means to play for a club of Man United's caliber.
"I think it’s great," Lindelof told Fotballdirekt. "I play in one of the world’s biggest clubs and it’s clear that you want good players.
"It’ll always be a competitive situation. I only see it as positive that we get good players into the club.
"It will only develop us. For my own part, I see no problem with it.
"Sometimes I may not play a match but, for me, it does absolutely nothing.
"I have played a lot the last two years and, last year, I had back problems and played with some pain."
The 27-year-od is currently on international duty with Sweden in the ongoing World Cup qualifiers. They take on Greece in their next match.
