Manchester United have agreed to erect a green canvas screen around the Carrington training pitch after Louis van Gaal expressed concerns over spies leaking his tactics.
A report on MailOnline claims the Dutchman was paranoid about his training sessions being leaked to Premier League rivals if prying eyes were allowed to observe his notoriously brutal sessions.
Work is already underway on the fence, with the club hoping to have it completed by the time players return from international duty next week.

It is further evidence that Van Gaal is getting more and more neurotic about his tactics. According to the same report, workers installing power outlets for electric cars were recently told to leave the premises when the players emerged to undergo a routine training session.
Van Gaal has also told club staff that a lane running round the back of Carrington must be closed off when sessions are ongoing. The backroad, which is usually used as an overspill car park during youth games, has a section where the first-team training pitch can be seen.
It is the latest work Van Gaal has ordered after the Dutchman demanded floodlights to be installed as well as for the training pitch to be identical to the grass at Old Trafford.
The savvy Ed Woodward has already seen a chance to make the Red Devils a bit more money with the executive vice chairman planning to sell the green canvas as advertising space to club sponsors.
Woodward has already helped the club achieve revenue of epic proportions and has been described as the 'Cristiano Ronaldo' of commercial revenue.
Companies likely to be vying for space on the wall are Nissin, the instant noodle giant from Asia, and Aeroflot, the Russian airline and official team flyer.
