The wife of Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is house-hunting in Manchester.

Van Gaal will settle in at Carrington once the World Cup has finished, with his wife Truus already searching for houses in Alderley Edge.

The Daily Mail says Truus was spotted walking around the leafy village south of Manchester known for its celebrity inhabitants.

The area has forever been a magnet for the players and managers alike from both United and Manchester City.

Mario Balotelli rented a mansion there while he was at the Etihad Stadium, with former boss Roberto Mancini also residing there.

The average house price in Alderley Edge is more than a cool £1.5million.
