The Real Madrid legend had previously been the first choice for La Roja for many years, helping the country to two European Championships and the 2010 World Cup title.

However, following the tremendous rise of De Gea in the Premier League, Casillas' number one spot is now under threat for the national side.

The Red Devils goalkeeper was expected to replace Casillas at the Santiago Bernabeu, but the proposed move fell through on Deadline Day.

"It's healthy competition. The gaffer decides who plays". De Gea was quoted as saying by Marca.

"We're talking about one of the best keepers this country, or the world, has ever seen. I'm here to contribute whatever I can".

De Gea put in another impressive showing in the 1-1 draw against Italy on Thursday and could be the favourite to start at Euro 2016.
