Former England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is planning to build a wall around his massive £20million mansion to keep people out of his property.
DC United striker wanted to build a 9ft boundary wall and gates to keep out people entering his site as public footpath is very near to his mansion. However, planners told him that the proposed barrier was too high.
After that, the striker submitted revised plans for a lower wall at his new build in Cheshire. The plan has now been approved by the authorities.
The move comes after wife Coleen suffered sleepless nights and feared for their kids after their former home was broken into. At that time Rooney was playing his testimonial match back in 2016.
Rooney’s new home will boast a six-car garage, cinema, swimming pool, five-a-side football pitch and two fishing lakes.
DC United striker also applied for planning permission to replace an existing front barred gate with a solid wall backed by a 2m-high hedge as a last line of defence.
