Manchester United have announced a £50 million investment in their Carrington Training Complex with renovations to begin next week.

The works will take place for the duration of the 2024/25 season and United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe said: “We want to create a world class environment for our teams to win. When we conducted a thorough review of the Carrington training facilities and met with our men’s first team players, it was clear the standards had fallen below some of our peers.

“This project will ensure Manchester United’s training ground is once more renovated to the highest standards.”

The renovations will initially focus on gym, medical, nutrition and recovery areas with temporary adaptions being made to the rest of the site to allow players operate at the complex next season.

The new development will follow the £10 million women’s and academy building opened last summer.
