Well let me start off by saying this is going to maybe sound unbelievable and it may not be true, but I can only go on what I have been told so here goes.
Today I have been told from a someone high up in the council in Manchester, that our owners have big plans for our ground including the surrounding area and have been in discussions with the council about it.
Our owners have put it forward to the council that they will build up the area and create jobs if they sell them the land, for instance the casino idea that was scrapped, our owners have supposedly offered to go ahead and build one if that's what it will take for them to be allowed to buy the land. Saying that whether it be a casino or hotels and so on, the main objective for the council and our owners is to build a complex to create jobs and regenerate the area, and at the same time make City the greatest club in the world.
Now non of the above shocked me really, but I was a little taken back when my source went on to tell me that our owners are creating plans to possibly knock down the stadium and build a new one, their reasons behind this are suppose to be that if we reach our goal of being a champions league team and ultimately one of the best teams in the world, they feel that having a 60,000+ all seated stadium goes with the territory.
I was also told that between 300 - 500 million is the money being talked about for our owner to purchase the land.
I know some of this may seem a little far fetched and I don't like silly lies as much as the next guy, but I had to write about this seems as it came from a respectable person and if it did happen I would be gutted that I was not the first to let it out, anyway lets hope it is true sounds like it would be great for Manchester and our football club.
