Man United legend Sir Alex Ferguson is left £3m fortune by his beloved wife ... trends now

Sir Alex Ferguson has been left with a £3 million fortune by his beloved wife Cathy following her death at the age of 84. 

A will penned by Lady Cathy Ferguson, who married the Manchester United legend in 1966 and tragically passed away last year, ordered her fortune to be kept in a trust for the benefit of her husband and their children. 

Probate papers revealed she had left a £3,181,310 estate by the time of her death. But her gross estate had been valued at £3,299,823. 

The couple, who have three sons, Mark, Darren, and Jason, met in 1964 while Sir Alex was playing with Dunfermline Athletic at the age of 23, and they married shortly before his move to Rangers.

She had been at his side as he forged his career in football and enjoyed huge success with Aberdeen and Manchester United.
