Man United Could Demolish Old Trafford

Manchester United could demolish Old Trafford as part of their plans to revamp the stadium, the UK Telegraph reports.

The 74,140-capacity stadium has been the Red Devils’ home since 1910.

However, United’s owners, the Glazer family, have come under fierce criticism for Old Trafford’s lack of modernisation during their tenure.

The club has now received three proposals to redevelop the stadium, one of which includes knocking it down.

That would allow United build a new stadium that can hold up to 90,000 fans.

However, the Premier League club would face a major hurdle as regards the venue they would play their home fixtures while their new ground is being built.

A groundshare with Manchester City would be off the table, while there is no other stadium in the region big enough to be a temporary home for United.
