Anders Lindegaard admits Aalesund's 3-0 Europa League defeat by Motherwell was not the best game to showcase his ability to Manchester United.
The Danish goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Old Trafford after impressing during his time with Aalesund and has been mooted as a long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar.
United's reserve team coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was at Fir Park on Thursday evening and saw Lindegaard concede twice in the opening 15 minutes.
The 26-year-old is keen on a move to the Premier League, but concedes his big audition at Motherwell did not go as planned.
"You don't have to be a rocket scientist to calculate how important this game was for me," Lindegaard told Sky Sports News.
"Playing in Great Britain, there's probably a couple of clubs here watching and, when you're down after 15 minutes 2-0 and the other team doesn't have a decent shot on goal for the rest of the game, then this wasn't a good game for me to show the world.
"When you play in Scandinavia it's a big dream to go abroad for me, especially to the Premier League or to Great Britain."
When asked if he is happy that United are reportedly showing an interest, Lindegaard replied: "Of course, who wouldn't go to Manchester United."
