From town, a tram return to Sale is probably the cheapest (£3.60), but also check if you can use a peak or off-peak Metrolink Saver ticket for the day (all tram services: £6.40 peak, £4.50 off-peak). You could use the 163 bus to get back up to Old Trafford and town. Allow 20 minutes to get out from town to Old Trafford.
Parking is possible in the side streets around Old Trafford Tram Station, although you'll have to catch the tram back there from sale after the walk.
