With the Premier League transfer window now shut for the winter, cashed up footballers will be moving around the country in order to be closer to their team mates and training grounds. Here at FindaProperty we like to help out where we can, so we’ve picked out these homes for sale to help the young chaps settle in.
1. Fernando Torres
We say: This sophisticated mansion on the Crown Estate in Oxshott Surrey is within striking distance of Chelsea’s training ground and would suit 26-year-old family man Torres. It would also make him a neighbour to new team mate John Terry.
The six-bedroom family home features an indoor pool complex, air conditioning, personal lift and staff annex as well as extensive gardens. It’s on the market with Knight Frank with a guide price of £3.9 million.
2. Andy Carroll
The Gateshead born 22-year-old will no doubt invest quality time finding his perfect Scouser pub once he’s relocated after Liverpool paid Newcastle £35 million for the goal scoring Carroll who’s well known for his love of the drink.
We say: Carroll would do well to set up home near Liverpool star Steven Garrard, who lives with wife Alex Curran in a £3 million mansion in the Merseyside suburb of Freshfield. Alternatively he could opt for this three bedroom penthouse apartment with sea views in Crosby, Merseyside, which, let’s face it, is probably more Carroll’s style.
It’s on the market for £1.3 through Davis Beyga Estates
3. Luis Suarez
Uruguayan born striker Luis Suarez will up sticks from Dutch club Ajax and relocate to Liverpool after being traded for a tidy £22.7 million.
We say: Family man Suarez, who has a daughter with wife Sofia, should head for Woolton, Merseyside, the suburb Fernando Torres has been calling home ahead of his move to Chelsea.
This four bedroom Grade II listed semi has recently been updated and features a lounge room, study, dining room and kitchen as well as a courtyard and detached garage with space for four cars.
It’s on the market with Entwistle Green for £1 million.
