Manchester United have diagnosed that their players are getting tired after training sessions at their Carrington base—and have apparently decided to remedy that by installing beds on site.

Plans have been approved for a sleeping area to be built, the Metro claims, which means United's stars will be able to catch 40 winks before heading home after a day at the office.

The Metro quote a "source" at Manchester United, who says:

It may sound like sleepy-time at a nursery but the beds serve a real purpose.

Going from nothing to two training sessions a day leaves even professional stars knackered.

We'll leave you to make your own jokes about the Red Devils having sleepwalked through most of the season.
