He made the choice following the death of his wife, Lady Cathy, last month.
According to The Mirror, legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has put his multimillion-pound estate up for sale.
After the tragic death of Sir Alex’s wife Lady Cathy, the £3.5 million Cheshire mansion has been up for sale. At eighty-four, she passed away in October.
In addition to her spouse, Lady Cathy also left behind two sisters, three sons, twelve grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. The couple got married two years after meeting in 1964, when the United manager was just twenty-three, and their partnership lasted for fifty-seven years.
The impact Lady Cathy had on Manchester United cannot be overstated. In addition to providing her husband with assistance in the demanding field of football management, she also persuaded the Scot to postpone his retirement intentions in 2002, after which the Old Trafford squad went on to win six more Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy under his leadership.
In his memoirs, he wrote that she had said to him, “One, you’re in good health. Secondly, you are not welcome in our home. Thirdly, you’re still too young.” 2013 saw Sir Alex step down due to the death of her sister, Bridget Robertson.
“I most certainly would have continued,” he said. One evening when my wife was watching television, I noticed that she was staring up at the ceiling. I knew she lived alone. You do realize that she and Bridget were twins?
In July, Sir Alex, 81, who is registered as a director of the company, advertised a snooker table from the games area for sale. After her tragic death, he has now made the decision to list his £3.5 million house for sale.
The games area of the grand Wilmslow home features a tartan carpet from the Ferguson clan. It is available without a chain.
According to estate agents, “This stunning, surprisingly roomy detached home is situated on a very private, gated, and secure plot.” It has about 7,000 square feet. Images of the five-bedroom mansion display a foyer chandelier, en suite bathrooms, well-kept grounds, and a plethora of family portraits and mementos from Sir Alex’s life.
Sir Alex was spotted in Manchester earlier this month attending Sir Bobby Charlton’s burial.
