A source told the website: ‘Wayne is golf mad and his older sons enjoy the game as well, he’s got a little putting area at his current place.

‘But with all the land available at his new place, the gardeners and designers will have free rein.

‘He wants a couple of full-length holes with bunkers, water features, buggies — the lot.’

Builders returned to work on Wayne and Coleen’s new mansion in Cheshire on Wednesday, after construction came to a halt because of the pandemic. 

Work on the estate near Knutsford stopped last month due to concerns around building supply deliveries, as lockdown restrictions came into full force.

The family home will have its own orangery, snooker room with bar, cinema and swimming pool when construction is finished. 

Safety precautions are being taken after the family suffered an attempted burglary at their old £6million home in 2016 while he was playing a football match. 

The couple reportedly paid a Cheshire property more than £4million to build their dream three-storey home in 2017, kitted out with state-of-the-art security features. 

The Rooneys were hoping to be in their new home this month, after the English Football League had ended. But the pandemic has left League bosses with problems in setting a new date for the season’s conclusion.

A source close to the footballer claimed the family had not planned to move in ‘for a significant while yet’.

The couple and their four sons Kai, 10, Klay, seven, Kit, four and baby Cass have been staying in a nearby £5million home while the Cheshire mansion is being built.
