? Manchester United may need to spend upwards of £200m in order to bring Old Trafford in line with the best stadiums in the Premier League, with the condition of the venue and the potential costs involved also said to be putting off potential suitors looking to buy out the Glazer family.

Old Trafford was once the leading stadium in England, with renovation and additional building work a near constant feature of the 1990s and early 2000s.



A leaking roof has plagued Old Trafford for a number of years and it lacks the same modern finishes and comfort enjoyed at the homes of its Premier League rivals.

One of the longstanding issues for United regarding Old Trafford has been the redevelopment of the south stand, which backs onto a railway line.

Doing such work would also require Old Trafford to close while the project is undertaken and for United to find a new temporary home.

But it appears the club is stuck because the Mail notes that they privately indicate the cost of redevelopment is ‘unviable and impossible within the financial model on which the Glazers concluded their leveraged £790m takeover in 2005’.
