Man Utd to spend £5m this summer after Cristiano Ronaldo complaints

Manchester United are reportedly upgrading their training ground facilities after receiving some complaints from Cristiano Ronaldo.

United have just registered their worst campaign in the Premier League era with their lowest-ever points tally, while a sixth-placed finished ensured that there will not play Champions League football at Old Trafford next season.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, ended the season with 24 goals in all competitions, and was not shy in showing his frustrations on the pitch on a number of occasion.

But, The Mirror claims that Ronaldo also made it clear to United’s hierarchy that he was unhappy with some parts of the training ground, and improvement works will start ahead of pre-season.

The report claims that the Portugal international didn’t want to use the pools at Carrington because loose and chipped tiles made it dangerous.

It’s claimed that Ronaldo told the Red devils’ hierarchy that he could not believe the pool had not been refurbished since he left Old Trafford in 2009.

A source at United told the newspaper: ‘Cristiano is an important voice at the training ground. ‘In the past players might have said something but nothing happened. If Cristiano speaks up, people listen, take notice and things tend to change’

Meanwhile, The Telegraph claim that United are spending around £5 million on improving Carrington this summer.

United have already improved the catering facilities and dining area during the campaign, and are freshening up the gym, the pool and installing new pitches before the start of next season.
