Manchester United have yet to make a big signing on the pitch under incoming manager Louis van Gaal, but they have agreed to a deal for a new official pharmaceutical sponsor in Korea and Vietnam.

Cho-A Pharm, the latest company to attach its name to the Old Trafford club, have tie-ins and deals with multiple companies in a string of different markets across the world.

According to a statement on Manchester United's official website:

Cho-A Pharm, which celebrates its 26th anniversary this year, produces over 200 products, exporting to more than 20 countries. Domestically, Cho-A’s products are distributed by MediPharm, the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary and the biggest pharmacy chain in South Korea, with a network of over 1,000 outlets. 

United's Group Managing Director Richard Arnold said: "With an on-going commitment to product innovation, coupled with a desire to be an industry-thought leader, Cho-A is a market leader in Korea and Vietnam.

If the following tweet is any indication, the jokes will start swiftly, but United won't mind the extra revenue.
