Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has stumped up £3.1million for a new family home in Cheshire.
The luxury five-acre pad, complete with its own wildlife pond, is in a leafy village that will provide a rural base for the England star, long-term girlfriend Paige Milian and their newborn son Thiago.
The 22-year-old purchased the five-bedroom, 7,500 square-foot property before Christmas after previously renting a £3million mansion in the same county

The £180,000-a-week City winger’s new mansion neighbours several farms, with the stunning property boasting its own paddock and an additional one bedroom guest apartment over a triple garage.
Sterling’s new home is just under an hour’s drive from City’s Etihad Campus training base.
Paige, a 22-year-old model, had childhood sweetheart Sterling by her side as she gave birth to Thiago in a Manchester hospital last week.
Sterling, who joined City for £49million from rivals Liverpool in 2015, also has a four-year-old daughter called Melody Rose from a previous relationship.

The new purchase comes after Sterling took his former home in Birkdale off the market before Christmas after failing to find a buyer.
The 22-year-old star put the four-bedroom mansion up for sale after moving from Liverpool to City last summer.
The four-bedroom property, in Birkdale, Merseyside, went on the market for £1.5m in August 2015 but the price was slashed to £1.2m – £50k less than he paid – in March of the same year.
It is unknown whether Sterling has been unable to find a buyer for his former property.
