Former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland footballer Roy Keane has parted company with his mansion in the Suffolk village of Woodbridge for a cool £2.95m.

The detached 100 year old property has seven double bedrooms, swimming pools (yes – that’s more than one!) and a tennis court, and is described as an “exquisite property with enviable far reaching panoramic views of the River Deben.”

Keane previously lived in Cheshire in a grand family home valued at £9.5 million, before relocating to Suffolk in 2009 when he started his ill-fated spell as manager of Ipswich Town.

He, his wife and five children, had lived in the Woodbridge mansion ever since, but are now thought to be relocating to either his native Cork or the north-west where Keane is currently carrying out scouting and television work.

The pictures released by the estate agent responsible for the sale, provide a fascinating glimpse into one of football’s most uncompromising figures, the home is tastefully decorated with solid oak throughout and a colour palette of deep reds, browns with splashes of yellow.

Surprising inclusions include a grand piano and treehouse.

Somewhat disappointingly, there is no evidence of dartboards with crude images of Alex Ferguson tacked onto them however.
