Rooneys bank £3.7million from sale of 5-bed mansion dubbed Wayne’s World

    THE Rooneys have banked £3.7million from the sale of their former home dubbed Wayne’s World.

    Wayne and Coleen bought the plot for £1.5million in 2005 and knocked down a 1930s home to make way for a five-bedroom mansion.

    The couple, both 36, quietly put it on the market earlier this year.

    According to Land Registry documents, it sold for £3.7million in May — five months after they moved into a £20million six-bed mega-mansion 30 miles away in the Cheshire countryside.

    A source said: “They were sad to sell it but their new house is so amazing they had no reason to keep it.”

    Their old three-storey home, in Prestbury, Cheshire, boasts a pool, gym, spa bath and cinema.

    It has a five-a-side football pitch where Wayne enjoyed kickabouts with sons Kai, 12, Klay, eight, Kit, six, and four-year-old Cass.

    The house sits in a secluded lane and is protected by an imposing perimeter fence and CCTV cameras linked to a 24-hour security team.

    Ex-England football captain Wayne is living in the US — where he is manager at D.C. United.

    Meanwhile Coleen has stayed in the UK with their boys.
