John Terry, a professional football for English Premier League side Chelsea, has reportedly sold a luxury mansion in Britain to the Sultan of Oman for $26m.

According to the UK’s The Sun newspaper, the 33-year old England international made the sale of the nine-bedroom home in Surrey through General Sultan bin Mohammed Al Naamani, a senior minister in the Gulf state’s government.

Al Naamani is believed to have acquired the property on behalf of Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who has an affinity with the UK, having served at the nearby Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

“We're told the Omani royal family wanted the house at any cost. John Terry loved that place and really put his stamp on it. The Sultan made him an offer he couldn't refuse,” an anonymous source supposedly told the newspaper.

If true, the deal represents a significant profit for Terry, who purchased the home in 2007 for £1.8m ($3m), before investing £4m in renovations.

The Sultan’s office could not be contacted at the time of writing to confirm the report.
