The unexpected strategy that Sir Jim Ratcliffe has revealed to get Manchester United out of the “tired” Old Trafford has been revealed.

Britain’s richest billionaire believes that a new, opulent stadium for the Red Devils might double as a national stadium in the north of England. Ratcliffe declared that moving United to a new location would be his first choice, even though the team’s existing home stadium requires a lot of work.

I think there’s a strong case for revitalizing Manchester’s entire south side.”

“National stadium construction in the UK has a bias; all of them are located in the south. Leveling up is a topic that is frequently discussed. Since HS2 has been canceled, all of the money will go into improving London’s rail system.”

“Just as residents in the south, those in the north also pay taxes. Why shouldn’t England have a place to play in the north of the country? Why must everyone in the north travel to the south in order to attend the
