Manchester United are reportedly plotting a project to revamp the infrastructure of Old Trafford and the club's training base in Carrington.

Manchester United have reportedly begun a project to revamp the infrastructure of Old Trafford and the club's training base in Carrington.

The owning Glazer family, who have been majority shareholders at United since 2005, have picked up criticism for their neglect of Old Trafford.

Supporters visiting the Theatre of Dreams can clearly see the stadium's outer structure, composed of a series of white panels, now blackened with dirt and rust.

Speaking about the issue to the United We Stand fanzine, executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said: "We're doing a big review in terms of where we are and what we need to do. We're also looking at the training ground, The Cliff, Old Trafford and Littleton Road."

Woodward went on to say that there were no plans to expand Old Trafford's current capacity of 76,000 - the second highest for a football stadium in England behind Wembley.

Since 2005, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Atletico Madrid have all moved into new stadiums, while Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all set in motion plans to expand and modernise their grounds.
