MANCHESTER UNITED legend Darren Fletcher has finally accepted an offer on his plush mansion after slashing £250,000 off the asking price.
The retired footballer, who had returned as a first team coach at United, had put the six-bedroom property at the start of last year for £3.25million.
However after eight months with no sale, Fletcher decided to reduce the price to £3m in September.
And estate agent Gascoigne Halman has announced the luxury mansion is now sold subject to terms and conditions.
It is thought the buyer must have offered around the asking price.
Scot Fletcher, 37, has lived in the property with wife Hayley and twin sons Jack and Tyler since July 2009, when he paid £2.45m.
The ex-midfielder moved from his previous home in Bowden, Gtr Manchester, after armed robbers raided the house while he was playing abroad in the Champions League.
They forced Fletcher’s then fiancee Hayley to hand over her engagement ring, before holding a knife to her throat and demanding more loot.
The family moved five months after the horrific attack.
The house is situated in plush Hale, Greater Manchester, near to United legend Nicky Butt and current star Paul Pogba.

It is only a short drive from Old Trafford and the team’s training base in Carrington, where Fletcher currently works as technical director.
The 8,000 square ft pad has four reception rooms, six double bedrooms and five bathrooms.
In a games room with a poker table, Fletcher had hung up shirts of famous opponents including Real Madrid and France legend Zinedine Zidane.
The bottom floor of the four-storey house is a deluxe leisure suite, with a swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna.
The pad has all of the mod-cons footballers favour, including a gym, cinema room and games area.
There is a gated entrance with a garage and parking courtyard – to store the flash motors Premier League stars love.
Estate agent Gascoigne Halman said: “A stunning, bespoke detached family home which is arranged over four floors with a lower ground floor leisure suite including a swimming pool.
“Four main reception rooms, contemporary kitchen, six double bedrooms and five bath and shower rooms.
“Secure gated entrance, attached garage and landscaped gardens to the front and rear.”
The garden has a sign hint of the star’s occupation with a football net out back.
Fletcher’s sons Jack and Tyler appear to be taking after their dad – with both currently starring for the Manchester City's Under-14s.
The midfielder appeared 342 times for Manchester United between 2002 and 2015, winning five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League.
Fletcher, who is originally from Dalkeith, in Midlothian, made 80 appearances for his native Scotland.
He made a further 118 Premier League appearances for West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City before hanging up his boots in 2019.
