Neville and former team-mate Ryan Giggs plan to build offices, bars, restaurants and a four or five-star hotel around the historic building, off Deansgate, in partnership with the council.

Bootle Street itself is being bought up by the town hall for more than £2m as the final piece in the jigsaw – so that detailed plans for the multimillion pound regeneration of the area can be drawn up.

It is the latest in a series of major property ventures by former United defender Neville, who is currently building Hotel Football in partnership with Giggs at Old Trafford.

A spokesman for the consortium said: “This is an exciting regeneration opportunity in a significant location which we believe will add to the vibrancy of Manchester city centre.”
