It comes after the club was criticised for the state of the famous old ground last season and subsequently invested £20million in it over the summer.

New disabled facilities were unveiled last week which have been praised as some of the best in the world.

A new viewing platform for disabled fans was installed at the top of the Stretford End which cost £11m.

It was welcomed by the club's disabled supporters' association - MUDSA.

And that spend took the total summer outlay to £20m after much-needed cleaning and decorating took place to the stadium's exterior.

United also installed new rail seating along with Chelsea.

And they improved the pitch, floodlights and the changing rooms, according to chief operating officer Collette Roche.

Roche told the Manchester Evening News: "We did quite a lot over the summer, we spent about £20m on a new pitch, floodlights, changing rooms, the rail seats.

"But for me that is only the start. We do recognise the need to invest even more in Old Trafford and that's what we've turned our attention to now.

"We're starting to scope out what a world-class Old Trafford looks like and we'll go through the process and the project of getting that off the ground."
