Patrick Vieira has reportedly just sold his £2.2m Cheshire home.

The ex-Arsenal midfielder allegedly put the house he bought with his wife Cheryl back in 2010 on the market after he became head coach at New York City FC last year.

Obviously, the Frenchman originally bought it so he could be closer to Manchester City at the time but now he lives in the US.

According to the Daily Mail, the Wilmslow-based house has gone for £2,295,000, subject to the contract.

3 managers Arsenal should not be considering to replace Wenger

The 6,500 square foot mansion offers seven bedrooms, a gym, wine cellar and sauna.

The area is apparently popular with footballers so it’s unclear why it took a year to sell.

Although Vieira is currently in America, Ray Parlour reckons Arsenal should take a gamble on the 41-year-old and appoint him as manager.

His former side lost 3-0 to Manchester City for the second time in five days on Thursday and fan unrest has reached an all-time high.

It’s clear that Arsenal need to look for a new coach but whether they actually are or not or if it’s all talk remains to be seen.

Regardless of whether Vieira could become Arsenal manager one day, him selling his house in Cheshire doesn’t appear to be linked to a move to north London.
