Roy Keane: Man United legend puts up Aston Martin car for sale

- Roy Keane is ready to part ways with his Aston Martin DB7 Vantage racing car

- The Irishman bought the car to celebrate Man United's treble-winning season in 1999

- Keane was part of the Red Devils team that won Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup all in one season

Manchester United legend Roy Keane is ready to sell the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage he bought after winning treble with the club in 1999.

The 48-year-old former midfielder was among the history-making Red Devils squad that won three titles in just one season over two decades ago.

They won the UEFA Champions League, Premier League, and the FA Cup to crown their efforts at the end of the campaign.

Keane celebrated his side's triumph back then with the £24,000 valued car, and about 11 years later, he is ready to part ways with the vehicle.

According to SunSport, the former midfielder was the first to acquire the racing car which was owned by just three people. It has now been put up for sale on Auto Trader for £23,950.

An AutoTrader spokeswoman said: "Roy Keane bought this Aston Martin to celebrate Manchester United's iconic Treble win of '99, standing out as the best four-wheeled piece of memorabilia to mark a golden milestone in the club's history.

"But it's quite a contrast to the footballers' cars we see so often on Auto Trader today, with G-Wagons and Range Rovers being the go-to choice for most Premier League players.

"Football fans browsing AutoTrader for some isolation respite may even see more famous cars on site in the weeks, as footballers look to occupy their time while the football remains suspended."

Roy is not the only player to have listed his old car for sale on Auto Trader as Liverpool legend Steven Gerard did the same with his former Range Rover.

Gerome Boateng used the website to flog his Porsche Cayenne and Ryan Giggs advertised his incredible Bentley Continental on there.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Roy Keane has stated that Anthony Martial has been forced to raise his game since the arrival of Nigerian sensation Odion Ighalo at Old Trafford.

Martial was the hero when United faced fierce neighbours City during another edition of the Manchester Derby after breaking the deadlock on the half-hour mark after a quickly taken free-kick from Bruno Fernandes found the Frenchman who hit a first-time volley to make it 1-0 before McTominay sealed the victory late on.

Ighalo who has scored three goals since joining United was brought in two minutes from time in that game and Keane believes the arrival of the former Watford forward has been instrumental to Martial’s new turn.
