Tomasz Kuszczak is keeping an open mind as he battles to become the No.1 at Manchester United.
Dutch veteran Edwin van der Sar is set to hang up his gloves at the end of the season and speculation is rife as to his long-term successor.
The Red Devils have already brought in Anders Lindegaard but are also thought to want an established No.1 to replace the veteran.
While Sunderland's Craig Gordon, Manuel Neuer of Schalke, Ajax's Maarten Stekelenburg and Lyon's Hugo Lloris have all been linked with the role, Kuszczak, who is currently enjoying a run in the side in Van der Sar's absence, is keeping an open mind as to Sir Alex Ferguson's intentions.
The Poland international, who joined United in 2006 from West Brom, told the Manchester Evening News: "I know I have not got the biggest name in the world but, and I don't want this to sound arrogant, I think I am good enough.
"I have talked to the boss a few times and he said we will see what happens at the end of the season and I know that in the meantime if I get a chance I have to play well because that is the only way I am going to impress him.
"If the club decide I am not good enough for them then I will have to go somewhere else.
"If Sir Alex Ferguson decides at the end of the season I am not good enough then I will look for another club.
"Everything is open now. I am realistic about my situation. It would not frighten me to take over as Edwin's successor. Why should it? I am not new here.
"I have been on the bench because I have been waiting for my chance not because I didn't think I was good enough to be No.1. I have been very patient and I think it is worth waiting for your chance here.
"I think I deserve my chance to spend some time on the pitch because I have been so patient.
"If I play for this club long term then I will be really happy because that has always been my dream.
"I came to Manchester to try to be a top goalkeeper here for many years like my idol Peter Schmeichel."
Kuszczak insists the speculation does not bother him as he focuses on winning the No.1 jersey on a more permanent basis.
He added: "There is a lot of speculation about my position and other goalkeepers that the media say the club are trying to bring in.
"But speculation doesn't hurt me at all. There is competition everywhere in every position at a big club like United. It is normal that new players come in and you have to fight again for your position.
"It is also normal that people speculate about possible newcomers but I am not new here. I am not someone who doesn't know what to do.
"It is not easy to sit on the bench for a long time and then have to go in for two or three important games when everyone expects United to win. It is difficult especially for a goalkeeper.
"But I have done my best. I don't really want to keep calling these chances. I have had a lot of chances. Last year I played 11 in a row and everyone was saying that was my chance.
"I played well but after 11 games I was back on the bench when Edwin was fit and everyone forgot about me."
