As far as modern stadia go OT is a complete mess. Wont be long before a new one is touted.

Working on two new stadiums at the minute and they're fucking great.

Stadia? Lexi?

Old Trafford is shite now isnt it. It used to look cool with the ‘modern cantilever’ roof. Its just a hodge podge now.

Default Bridgewater Canal + Railway line = OT limits

The Bridgewater Canal on one side, the Railway line on the other have always presented access and egress problems and would limit any new build at OT site that is outside the existing footprint.
Ownership of the land relative to the canal & railway is also a problem. United wont spend millions on land they don't/can't own
Best bet to move over other side of Wharfside Way, overlooking Salford Quays

Even without a new South Stand, two new quadrants which were looked at previously would make a big difference and iirc it wouldn't affect the train line. Last year I met with the architecture studio that worked on the South Stand designs and they said even without touching the train line you could build over it.

Why would we want to make the stadium bigger at this stage? There's a hell of a lot of empty seats around old trafford these days
