There are big changes that are about to happen at Manchester United – from drastic alterations at their beloved home stadium to Jose Mourinho being offered the complete backing of the club higher-ups to swoop for rival superstars.
To start off, the United gaffer’s constant and rather vocal worries about the atmosphere at Old Trafford have finally been heard and almost answered.
According to Daily Mail, the club authorities have come to a conclusion that in order to make sure Mourinho has no complaints, and to propel his almost certain spending spree, the stadium capacity will have to be increased by a number around 13,000 seats.
However, despite his concerns about the ambiance at the club’s home territory, the Portuguese has put the plans to redevelop Old Trafford on hold.
Instead, the Special One’s top priority currently lies in the strengthening of his squad. And to do that, the Mancunian giants are ready to financially back their tactician in all ways possible.

Moreover, to really highlight the ambitious road the Red Devils are on, look no further than their 6-man transfer shortlist, which includes the likes of Jean Michael Seri, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Jorginho, Victor Wanyama and Toni Kroos.
But according to the report, Chelsea’s Willian is the most likely candidate that could become a Red Devil. The Brazilian, with his new-found flair, has managed to impress his former boss, especially after scoring against United last week.
The fee for the deal is said to be around £40 million, which in context with the recent inflation in the transfer market, would be more or less a bargain if it goes through.
Though no whispers of the 29-year-old wanting an exit from Stamford Bridge have been heard so far, an offer from the record league champions could be the trigger he needs to change his mind.
