Lindegaard opening as Man Utd pal De Gea named in Spain Olympics squad

David De Gea has handed Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson a preseason headache.

The Spaniard has been named in their Olympics squad.

Euro 2012 final goalscorers Juan Mata (Chelsea) and Jordi Alba (Barcelona) are also included in the European Champions plans ahead of the London Games.

Champions League winner Mata is joined by Chelsea colleague Oriol Romeu in the 21-man party to face Senegal and Mexico later this month.

De Gea's selection opens the door to Anders Lindegaard establishing himself as United No1 going into the new season.
