There’s no doubting that Old Trafford is a wonderful sporting venue.

Over the years, its development has seen the ground grow, along with the capacity.

Most Premier League games have the ‘sold out’ signs up as the punters continue to flock down Sir Matt Busby Way to watch their side.

However, it seems that plans to further increase the capacity, to a figure approaching 88,000 are not, for now, set to come to fruition.

The plan to add an extra tier to the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand has, according to one news source, The Express, been shelved.

It seems that to achieve the improvements objective, Old Trafford would have to be evacuated to enable the work to be carried.

But, with that being the case, Manchester United are unable to find a suitable temporary home big enough to house their support with our source implying that ground-sharing with Manchester City is not a favoured option.

If that is the case, then Old Trafford will remain as is for the foreseeable future.
