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.

Briefly.co.za learned that 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 AutoTrader 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 AutoTrader 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.
