Cristiano Ronaldo, Emile Heskey and Wes Brown are all struggling to sell their lavish multi-million pound mansions when they move clubs

Footballers struggle to sell homes because no one else can afford them

The multi-million pound mansions of footballers and their other halves are the envy of most, but apparently no-one wants to buy them.

Cheshire’s Golden Triangle is home to several of the luxury homes, snapped up by footballers for northern Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.
But the sportsmen – including Cristiano Ronaldo, Emile Heskey and Wes Brown – struggle to sell on the top properties when they transfer.
Luxury home: The top property was originally on the market for £4.5million, but the couple have cut the price tag down to just £3million in hope of selling

The area around Wilmslow, Knutsford, Prestbury and Alderley Edge boasts five of the 10 most expensive streets in the North West.

But while the exclusivity is part of the lure for the big earning and big spending footballers, it can throw a spanner in the works when they try to sell up.
