Manchester United are to reinforce their training ground, in the wake of the ongoing terror threat.
The club have applied for planning permission to effectively install a ring of steel around the Aon Training Complex.
New gates, barriers and bollards – aimed at preventing unauthorised vehicles or persons get close to where Jose Mourinho puts his players through their paces – have been ordered as United look to beef up security at their Carrington base.
The move comes after the terror attack on Manchester Arena in May, in which 23 people died and hundreds more were injured when a suicide bomber struck following a pop concert.
It is one of a host of measures called for after a wide-ranging security review by senior club officials.
United’s application, lodged with planning bosses, reads: ‘A range of security measures are proposed as part of the application including new gates, barriers and bollards. These measures will upgrade existing security measures that are in place. This level of security is required due to the high profile of Manchester United and to continue to ensure that visitors are controlled and the complex remains secure.
The gates will provide the complex with a secure boundary.’ United declined to comment on the move however, Sportsmail understands that they are confident that permission will be granted and that they will be able to start work in the near future.
The plans follow on from the introduction of a host of new security measures at Old Trafford.
Before the start of the current season, United banned bags of a certain size from the stadium. Those with bags that are not allowed into the venue now have to take them to special bag drop areas.
