Manchester United observing two La Liga giants including Barcelona to get an idea about major aspect of building a new stadium

Manchester United are looking at La Liga clubs to get an idea about their new stadium

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has promised to bring about a ton of changes at Manchester United. The petrochemical billionaire and his INOES group have big plans to take Old Trafford to its former glory.

They are planning a complete squad overhaul during the summer. Signs indicate that a new manager could soon be appointed to take control of the first team. Moreover, there are also plans to break down and rebuild their century-old stadium Old Trafford.

Ratcliffe wants to make something spectacular out of the iconic stadium. Some talk suggests that he has plans to convert the old place into the Wembley of the North. However, that will likely run him quite a large amount of money.

The Sun reports that Ratcliffe has been taking inspiration from two La Liga giants. Barcelona and Real Madrid, two of the biggest clubs in Spain have recently renovated their stadiums. Madrid rebuilt the Bernabue for around ÂŁ1.5bn.

On the other hand, the iconic Camp Nou, home to Barcelona is under renovation and is expected to run the Catalans a figure north of £1.3bn. The INEOS chief has been impressed by the Spaniards’ ability to do such stellar work at a remarkably lower price than he would have to spend on Old Trafford.

If Ratcliffe can get an idea about how they’ve pulled it off and managed to stay profitable after the process the redevelopment of Old Trafford will likely pick up the pace. Man United have always been strong at home and a new stadium could become the driving force for some much-needed momentum.

Hopefully, Ratcliffe will be able to come to a profitable conclusion about his pending decisions regarding the renovation of Old Trafford. The old place definitely deserves a touch-up, but only if it doesn’t break the bank.
