Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford building five-bedroom mansion in Cheshire complete with its own golf course

FOOTIE hero Marcus Rashford is having a five-bedroom home built complete with its own golf course.

The Man United star and school meals campaigner bought the disused golf club last May.

He will have an eco-friendly house constructed on the site and restore the nine-hole private course to play on with friends.

Marcus, 23, became the youngest person to top the Sunday Times Giving List last week after raising £20million to tackle UK child food poverty.

He had already persuaded the Government to make a U-turn on free school meals, ensuring kids were fed throughout lockdown, and received an MBE for his services to vulnerable children.

He will be able to relax at his new home which will boast a basement with wine cellar, gym, indoor swimming pool, plant room, games room and chill-out area.

Plans for the main house state the ground floor will have a den, study, lounge, dining room, open-plan kitchen and breakfast room.

And the first floor will have a master bedroom with en suite and walk-in dresser, four other bedrooms — three of which are also en suite — and a family bathroom.

Marcus is also building a two-storey apartment for guests, linked to the house by a passageway at the site in Cheshire.

The grounds, including the golf course, cover 80 acres.

Planning permission was granted for his company MUCS Properties in February.
