Ratcliffe greenlights £50m Carrington revamp

Manchester United will start work on revamping their Carrington training complex on Monday, per the Telegraph.

The Red Devils have reportedly earmarked £50 million to modernise the club’s facilities.

United released images on Friday showcasing the project’s envisioned outcome. They expect it to be completed by the end of next season.

This move comes after criticism from Cristiano Ronaldo and new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe regarding the base’s outdated state.

Ronaldo launched a scathing attack on the club’s facilities in November 2022. He blasted the lack of progress since his first stint with United.

The club refuted Ronaldo’s accusations at the time, but Ratcliffe was seemingly disappointed when he visited the base.

The revamp will primarily target the gym, medical, nutrition and recovery areas, fostering more space for collaboration and innovation among players and staff.

This project will be funded by Ratcliffe’s £235 million capital injection into the club.

To minimise disruption during construction, temporary adjustments will be made across the Carrington site.
