No strangers to corporate tie-ins, Manchester United have unveiled their latest commercial partner and, in all honestly, he looks like he's going to be a disruptive influence on the club.

To promote the imminent release of Deadpool 2, the movie's titular anti-hero is making his presence felt at Old Trafford by introducing a strict new dress code, loads of new branding and, most importantly, new knee pads.

How could allowing Deadpool to run one of the world's biggest football clubs possibly go wrong -- except in every way, shape and form imaginable, of course!

Anyway, we thought Ryan Reynolds was supposed to be a Real Madrid fan?
