Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has reportedly purchased a private golf course as part of his plans for a new home.
According to The Sun, Rashford has snapped up the greenfield site and plans to build his own mansion.
The striker currently owns a six-bed home in Cheshire worth £1.85million but was keen to purchase his own land in order to keep his property private.
The striker, who grew up on a council estate in Wythenshawe in the city, signed a big-money new contract at United last season.
His profile has also sky-rocketed after his charity work during the coronavirus pandemic and he is now keen to keep his privacy as he develops the secluded new site.
And a source told The Sun : “Marcus understands that part of being a footballer is being a public figure and wants to use his position as a positive force.
“But he also wants to be able to go home, shut the door and live a peaceful life off the pitch.
“He thinks building a new house surrounded by greenery will give him the escape he needs.
“He doesn’t even play but I’m sure some of his teammates will be keen to come and whack a ball or two.”
Rashford has raised around £20million by helping supply kids with school meals with charity FareShare UK during lockdown.
Rashford forced the government into a U-turn over their decision to scrap school meal vouchers.
There were high profile calls for him to receive a knighthood for his work and he recently received an honorary degree from the University of Manchester.
He vowed to “keep fighting until no child in the UK has to worry about where their next meal is coming from” after his successful campaign.”
