Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has sold his mansion in the upscale area of Greater Manchester for £2.3 million. The stunning villa was sold for £300,000 more than what he bought it for three years ago.
Speculation is rife that the footballer may be selling it as he is about to leave the club; however, Fellaini has signed a one-year contract extension in January and this might prove to be false as the weigh-in to his talent is still to be judged by the club’s manager.
The player has had a rough time keeping on par with the club and Manchester United supporters have mixed feelings about whether he should stay or leave. It remains to be seen if Jose Mourinho has plans for him in the future.
Fellaini’s mansion includes a leisure complex, a barber shop, an indoor swimming pool, home cinema room, a garden and outdoor area and a games room. The barber room has red salon-style chairs, a row of mirrors and a flat-screen TV and is possibly used to keep the footballer’s funky hair-dos in check.
The six-bedroom property also has additional amenities such as modern bathrooms and a wet room for sauna. The house was previously owned by 1966 World Cup victor Alan Ball and Fellaini has made a tidy profit now that he has passed on the house to its next attendant.
