TalkSport pundit Simon Jordan has slammed the idea that the Glazers won’t build a new stadium or upgrade Old Trafford for Manchester United amid the current takeover talks surrounding the club.

What’s the latest on the Glazers and the Man United takeover?

While there are two bids on the table for the club right now, it remains to be seen if United will be sold to either Sir Jim Ratcliffe or Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani.

The Glazers certainly have a big decision to make, while they may also remain involved in the club thanks to financing from US hedge fund Elliott Investment Management.

Amid the current situation, the future of the Premier League club has been subject to much debate in the media. For instance, respected journalist Henry Winter recently wrote an article for The Times on the matter.

In response to this, while talking on TalkSport, Jordan said it was “nonsense” that the club wouldn’t build a new stadium (as suggested by Winter) because they’d simply just borrow money to do it if they had to.

He said: “The Glazers will sell to whoever will write the biggest cheque, and if the biggest cheque isn’t available, they’ll continue with what they’ve got.

“And this idea – I was reading Henry Winter’s column today about how they won’t build a stadium for a billion quid or they won’t do this – it’s nonsense. They’ll do all of that because they’ll just borrow money to do it. And they’ll fund it against the development opportunities that the stadium will bring.

“So it’s silly arguments that get advanced in some of the sections of the newspapers.”

What could the takeover mean for Man Utd’s stadium plans?

It’s easy to see why some in the media have their doubts about how willing the current owners are to help improve the club on and off the pitch.

For example, before leaving Cristiano Ronaldo slammed the Glazers, noting that they’d failed to improve the facilities behind the scenes for a number of years.

However, if the ownership doesn’t end up changing entirely, this will likely be because the family have received some major outside investment.

This would potentially allow them to then take on a loan to upgrade or build a new stadium – which has already been discussed as a possibility in recent times.

Of course, no one is naive to think the Glazers will make changes with their own money out of the good of their own hearts. But if they remain in charge with some fresh financial backing,  you can see why Jordan feels as though a stadium upgrade could be on the cards.

Although, it might be wise to retain some scepticism seeing as they’ve not developed much at the club during their reign.
