Former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has put his house in New Jersey up for sale at £5.4 million and with an indoor football pitch, basketball court, golf simulator and pool it’s every sports fan’s dream.
What do you spend your money on if you’re on a footballer’s wage? How about the most incredible house that money can buy with everything you’ll ever need to keep you entertained.
That’s exactly what Tim Cahill did when he joined New York Red Bulls in 2012, buying a 10,000 square foot mansion in Saddle River in Bergen County, 21 miles north of Red Bulls Arena.
Now retired the 39-year-old is set to focus on his coach career and he’s selling the mansion for £5.4 million, according to Realtor.
The place looks incredible and has an indoor football pitch, basketball court, gym, spa, movie theatre and all sorts, along with a huge garden.

Cahill bought the property because it allowed him to be near enough the stadium and training ground for his MLS team but also he could spend time away with his family.
The Australian retired earlier this year after finishing his career with a stint back at Millwall, to get fit for last summer’s World Cup, and time at Indian club Jamshedpur.
But it’s his time in MLS that are most interesting, just because he spent the three years in the most ridiculous house imaginable, I only wish I had the money.
