England football star Raheem Sterling snapped up an entire road of houses for £1million after his fiancée decided to become a property developer.
The £300k-a-week Manchester City ace has bought six new two-bedroom houses in a rundown part of Stockport, Greater Manchester, and is now renting them out for £750 per month each.
Neighbours today said they were 'surprised' multimillionaire Sterling, 24, who lives in a £3million Cheshire mansion, had bought the properties – for around £166,000 each – in the unfashionable area of Reddish.

Paige and Sterling (seen on a sun-kissed holiday earlier this year) have set up a new company called Milian Property Group Ltd and she says they plan to add to their property portfolio
They say a terraced house opposite is a former drugs den and claim anti-social behaviour with teenage boys playing football has been a problem in the past.
One resident living nearby the modern complex told MailOnline: 'When the builders told me who had bought them I was gobsmacked.
Paige said she had been studying for months to get her property developer qualifications
'It's hardly a place you'd expect a millionaire footballer to invest in. I mean it is a bit rundown.
'Next door to me there was a drugs den operating where the guy living there had turned the place into a cannabis factory.
'I was woken up in the early hours by people knocking at my door because they had the wrong house.
'Some troublemakers have also torn down the guttering behind the builders and people smoke cannabis but you get that everywhere.
'I've been inside them and they are lovely but they are a bit expensive
