It is being built an hour away from Derby.
Wayne Rooney’s new £20million pad is nearing completion – and it looks sensational.
The Derby County captain is building the swanky pad on the outskirts of Knutsford in Cheshire.
Once complete in all its glory, the complex will boast a huge swimming pool as well as a garage for his collection of luxury cars.
His family will also reap the rewards of a private cinema, wine cellar, snooker room and two man-made fishing lakes.
The ex-England star has also laid down a full-size artificial pitch in his back garden – complete with a seating area and changing rooms.
But Rooney – who has made an impressive start to his Rams career – was blocked from installing floodlights because of his mansion’s rural location.
It emerged last year that Rooney, 34, paid more than £4million to a Cheshire property developer to build his new £20million mansion.
The Rooneys currently live in a £5million home nearby but are expected to move into their new 40-acre estate – which is just over an hour away from Derby – later this year.
Rooney is said to have amassed an £82million fortune from his wages, property portfolio and sponsorship deals.
His property portfolio also includes a £5million sprawling Barbados villa, which he rents out for £25,000 a week and a £320,000 waterfront apartment in Florida.
