According to the Guardian, David De Gea may need laser eye surgery at the end of the season to correct his long-sightedness.

The Spaniard has worn glasses all his life and currently plays in contact lenses to correct his vision, though Manchester United’s in-house optometrist has apparently recommended that he be pencilled in for surgery this summer after putting it off while still at Atletico Madrid last March.

Rather than slicing up eyeballs Goldfinger-style, may we be the first to recommend an experimental non-invasive Japanese treatment for long-sighted footballers?
