Manchester United have opened talks on a major Old Trafford remodel that could increase the stadium’s capacity to 80,000.

The club has often been criticized by fans for a lack of improvements at Old Trafford and problems including leaks from the roof of the Charlton Stand.

The development will not focus solely on the stadium, but United will also be interested in exploring different ideas to improve the entire footprint around the field.

Despite being England’s largest club ground at 74,140, ​​Old Trafford as a whole has not seen significant development since 2006.

United co-chairman Joel Glazer is aware of the stadium’s problems and told a Fan Forum meeting on September 24 that “ early stage planning work ” was underway for the redevelopment of Old Trafford and Carrington Training Ground.

Sportsmail reported earlier this month that the club was set to launch a search for master architects with a view to modernizing Old Trafford. It was said that an appointment to see Carrington was imminent, and that the stadium was ready to go.

No timetable has been set in the process, but kickoff meetings have now been held with various stakeholders, according to BBC Sport.

The focus at Old Trafford will be the aging South Stand, renamed Sir Bobby Charlton in 2016, and the challenge posed by the cost of building on the adjacent rail line and the impact on houses beyond for any expansion plan.

But improvements in building materials mean the job could now be done without that expense.

The development is also believed to seek to improve broadcast media and facilities, as well as additional hospitality areas, which the club considers essential for the project to be financially possible.
