It is where he lived with Rebecca and their three children before she died from breast cancer three years ago aged 34. TV pundit Rio, 40, cut the price to £3million but is so keen to start afresh with new love Kate Wright that it’s now on the market for £2million.

A source said: “This house holds many happy memories. But Rio’s life is in London and he’s trying to move on.

“He got engaged to Kate recently with the blessing of his children and there is no need for them to keep hold of this place 200 miles away.”

Rio made a BBC documentary after Rebecca’s death which followed him for a year afterwards as he tried to come to terms with the loss and its effects on him and his children. The programme - called ‘Rio Ferdinand:Being Mum And Dad’ - won a BAFTA.

A source said there is no reason why the husband and wife-to-be should hold on to the house

After Rebecca passed away, he released a heartbreaking statement saying: “My soul mate slipped away last night.

“Rebecca, my wonderful wife, passed away peacefully after a short battle with cancer at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.

“She was a fantastic loving mother to our three beautiful children. She will be missed as a wife, sister, aunt, daughter and granddaughter.

“She will live on in our memory, as a guide and inspiration.”
