News From Manchester: Manchester United race for six transfers as architects issue Old Trafford revamp update

One of the architects behind the plan to redevelop Old Trafford has outlined his desire to help turn Manchester United's iconic arena into a place that the supporters can truly call home.

The plan to redesign Old Trafford and bring it kicking and screaming into the 21st century as a state-of-the-art arena is currently in its early stages after the club appointed Populous and Legends International as its contractor last month. They are tasked with modernising the stadium, in a bid to try and bring it on par with the likes of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the Emirates Stadium.

Amongst the options being considered, two of them are to expand both the capacity and the stadium. As well as that, they also want to extensively redevelop the stadium, which has fallen behind its competitors in recent years.

Manchester United may sign up to six big names this summer, according to the latest odds.

Erik ten Hag is expected to ignite a squad revamp this summer after a dismal campaign at Old Trafford. Midfielders are top of the priority list with four current central players set to leave next month, including Paul Pogba.

Ten Hag is said to have a transfer budget of 120m, which he will have to spend wisely. Now, bookies have outlined which players they are favourites to land in the close-season.
