Edwin van der Sar is not thinking about his future at Manchester United.
The 36-year-old has just one-year left on his current contract at Old Trafford, but will begin the season as number one with Ben Foster sidelined and Tomasz Kuszczak set for a bench role.
However, van der Sar insists he will not think about a new deal until January at the earliest.
"Last season was a long campaign but I had a long break and I feel good," he told United's website.
"I am not thinking about what is going to happen. If I am still enjoying myself, then we will see but nothing will be decided before January."
Van der Sar will face Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday and he is looking for the champions to make a strong start to the new season.
"We must make sure we get off to a good start, like we did last season," he said.
"We have three games in the first week and it is important we do well in them otherwise we can end up under pressure straight away.
"From then on, the team will grow and the new players will learn what is expected of them."
