As Manchester United continue to scramble for new additions to the squad as deadline day fast approaches, the opticians couldn’t help but take a pop at the Red Devils’ transfer desperation.
Hi @ManUtd. The only holding role our opticians have is holding a pair of glasses up to the face of a happy customer. Please stop asking.

Erik ten Hag’s men have been linked with a shock move for Real Madrid’s Casemiro, however, which would represent stellar business for a side in serious need of genuine world-class quality.
We’re unlikely to see the squad bolstered in time for our visit to Old Trafford on Monday, which will likely be far less of a cakewalk as it transpired last term when we dished out a 5-0 thrashing of our rivals in Manchester.
The suspension of Darwin Nunez coupled with some top absentees will leave us in need of a top-class performance to secure our first batch of three points this season.
A failure to do so, as David James rightly warned, would potentially leave us with a seven-point gap to climb between ourselves and incumbent champions Manchester City.
