Manchester United recently formed a task force to consult on exploring options for Old Trafford refurbishment.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville was also added to the ask force as he announced on his social media stating how honoured and looking forward to the project he was.

“While I want the best for Manchester United, I also want the same for the surrounding community. Old Trafford should be a stadium that the whole of Greater Manchester can take pride in, and be a catalyst for sustainable, cohesive growth in an area of the city that has been neglected for too long,” he stated last Friday.

The former United right back has now detailed out the options Sir Jim and the task force have: either renovate and refurbish Old Trafford or build an entirely new stadium.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he highlighted how it all comes down to commercial factors and the feasibility.

“No one knows the answer to that because to be fair the one thing I won’t do is disrespect…what are the costs? What is the feasibility? What are the possibilities? What are the restrictions?” He stated.

“All the things that come into play. Where would United play while they are refurbishing their own ground. I know other clubs like Real Madrid have done it, but every stadium is different. “”

He added with regard to where the club would play in the meantime if the option of building a whole new stadium.

“Every structural solution is different. Until you get into the meat of the work and see what is really brought forward then I don’t think anyone has the answer.” He concluded.

He concluded by stating that is exactly why the task force was formed: to come up with answers to all those questions. The findings and the work they do will form the basis of this very important decision in the future of Old Trafford.
