Manchester United's De Gea set for eye surgery

Manchester: Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea may require laser eye surgery at the end of the season as he is long-sighted and wears contact lenses during games, according to the Guardian.

The Spaniard, who United signed for a fee of around 18 million pounds in the summer, has worn glasses all of his life and was seemingly going to get the surgery done when he was still in Spain but the doctors there reportedly told him to wait because he needed a stable prescription.

The 21-year-old has been replaced by Anders Lindegaard in the previous three matches and has come under criticism for various mistakes made during a difficult start to his United career.

The Guardian reports he has had many a check-up with the on-site optometrist who is based at the training ground and the conclusion is to have the surgery in the summer when there is a chance for him to recuperate within the four days needed after such a procedure.

This should give him enough time to recover before playing for Spain in the London 2012 Olympics as he looks set to miss out on Euro 2012 as Vicente Del Bosque looks set, injury and form permitting, to select Real Madrid's Iker Casillas, Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Liverpool's Pepe Reina.
