in brief UP THE UNITED

Manchester United is planning to expand its Old Trafford home with a £30 million design by Atherden Fuller to increase capacity from 55,300 to 67,400. To be completed by 2001, the scheme has been submitted to Trafford Council and would make the ground the largest in the uk, ahead of Celtic Park's 60,000-seater stadium. It is planned to go ahead even if BSkyB's bid for the club fails.
