MANCHESTER UNITED star Marouane Fellaini has sold his six-bedroom mansion for a hair-raising £2.3million – 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 had not been able to settle in the team and likely fears he is not part of manager Jose Mourinho’s plans.
He has had an up-turn in form in recent games, trusted to start in the 2-0 win over Burnley on Sunday.
But he has now flogged his detached property in an upmarket area of Greater Manchester for £2.3million ‘subject to contract’ – £300,000 more than he paid for it three years ago.
Chief among the attractions at the swanky pad is a barber shop, which the Belgian does not use to have his hair cut.
The 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.
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 4in former Standard Liege 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.
Fellaini was also reportedly offered to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian in January but their manager Fabio Cannavaro turned down the deal.
