Man United weighing up major decision

Manchester United fans are excited at the prospect of their famous stadium being renovated, as they’re keen to see their home keep pace with the new builds.

The Daily Mail states Manchester United are considering increasing the size of Old Trafford to 88,000, which would make the Red Devils’ home the second-largest club stadium in Europe.

United are proposing to increase their capacity by 12,000, with the new seats going into the Sir Bobby Charlton stand, and it would see only Barcelona’s Nou Camp stand as a larger club stadium on the continent.

Previously restricted by their location, advances in technology mean that Old Trafford can now become even bigger – in a move that would see the stadium become the second-biggest in England, behind Wembley, and larger than Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu.

Opening in 1910, Old Trafford last experienced a makeover in 2006 and our landlord believes that this extending their home further is the right choice.

A number of Red Devils fans by the jukebox here in the Transfer Tavern think this would be an excellent decision by the club, and would love to see the stadium expanded to get as many loyal United supporters in!
