Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has no problem with the signing of Anders Lindegaard.

Van der Sar hasn't announced his retirement, but accepts the decision to buy the Aalesunds keeper.

"The club has to look forward and anticipate certain things," the 40-year-old told "It would be strange if I were in my prime, around the age of 32, and things were happening around me.

"That would be awkward, but I think this situation is normal."
