RIO Fer­di­nand has sold his man­sion af­ter slash­ing the price.

The seven-bed­room prop­erty is set on a quiet street on the out­skirts of af­flu­ent Alder­ley Edge.

It ini­tially went on the mar­ket four years ago for £4.5m, be­fore the price was later re­duced to just un­der £3m.

The home, which the for­mer Manch­ester United and Eng­land star shared with his late wife Re­becca and their three chil­dren, is un­der­stood to have been sold ear­lier this year.

Re­becca trag­i­cally passed away in 2015 af­ter a bat­tle with cancer, and the for­mer foot­baller turned pun­dit is now based in Lon­don with his fam­ily.

Last month he pro­posed to his girl­friend Kate Wright dur­ing a hol­i­day to Dubai with his chil­dren.

His for­mer home still ap­pears on­line as sold sub­ject to con­tract, with a price of £2,999,500, al­though The Sun re­ports the fi­nal sale price was closer to £2m.

The huge prop­erty boasts six bath­rooms, a draw­ing room with vaulted ceil­ings, in­door swim­ming pool and jacuzzi, gym, a large gar­den and two garages.

Es­tate agent par­tic­u­lars for the im­pres­sive home, set in a se­cluded con­ser­va­tion area, de­scribe it as hav­ing ‘un­der­gone taste­ful sym­pa­thetic re­mod­elling in re­cent years.’
