Despite splashing upwards of £100m on the likes of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane during this summer’s transfer window, according to recent reports, Manchester United’s hierarchy is set to continue their spending as they look to inject £20m worth of stadium renovations.
That’s according to a recent report from Sky Sports, who claims that the club has recently revamped their changing rooms, which include a larger space for visiting teams to prepare for games in.
Not only have Old Trafford’s changing rooms been given a new lease of life, the club’s disabled facilities, as well as operational facilities for the media, have also been upgraded.
It has been noted that the work undertaken will remain separate from the promises co-chairman Joel Glazer made to fans back in June during an open forum session.
“Old Trafford is at the heart of Manchester United and while we have spent over £100m over the last 10 years on infrastructure projects, we will now accelerate the process of planning much more significant investment and upgrades to the stadium,” Glazer said.
“I do want to stress that these projects take time to plan and get right. But, rest assured, we will consult with supporters throughout the process to end up with a result we can all be proud of.
“The same goes for our training ground. Preliminary and exploratory planning work is already under way and there will be significant funding available to further enhance our facilities and ensure they remain world class.”
Although Old Trafford is set to see many upgrades, it has also been reported that the club’s training complex Carrington will also undergo improvements.
The Red Devils’ next home game is scheduled to take place on September 11 where they will host Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United in their fourth Premier League match of the new 2021-22 season.
