United star Fellaini selling woodland pad for a hair-raising amount!
Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has put his six-bedroomed mansion up for sale – heightening speculation that he may be leaving the club.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move since January but seemed to have committed to the Red Devils after signing a one-year contract extension the same month.
However the bushy-haired Belgian has still not been able to settle in the team and likely fears he is not part of manager José Mourinho’s plans.
And he has now put his detached property in an upmarket area of Greater Manchester on the market for £2.3 million.
Chief among the attractions at the swanky pad is Fellaini’s own personal barber shop, which hairdressers supposedly visit once a week to keep his famous afro in check.
The bespoke barbers – formerly a bedroom – features swanky red salon-style chairs, a flat-screen TV and a host of mirrors.
The beanpole midfielder was apparently attracted to the pad – which he bought for £2m in February 2014 – by the lure of three hairdressing salons nearby.
It is the former home of 1966 World Cup winner Alan Ball and Fellaini, who joined United from Everton for £27.5m in September 2013, counts United legend Ryan Giggs among his neighbours.
The mansion also boasts a home cinema room, swimming pool, hot tub and games room in a woodland location.
The estate agent blurb reads: “With a fabulous celebrity/footballing pedigree, this beautifully presented property has luxurious features including a leisure complex with heated indoor pool, home cinema room, adjacent detached guest annexe, open plan family living space, and it even has its own barber/hairdressing area.”
The 6ft 4ins former Standard Liège star had been unpopular with fans Old Trafford and was even booed by his own supporters in December, but scored in a 3-1 win over Middlesbrough on Sunday.
Fellaini was also reportedly offered to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian in January but their manager Fabio Cannavaro turned down the deal.
