conceived by Manchester-based planners Indigo, also include a games
room, a separate swimming pool building and en-suite

in Knutsford, which Solskjaer bought for £1.8 million last

with a persistent injury sustained celebrating his equalising goal
in Manchester United's famous 1999 Champions League victory.
