The motorbike was sold at Bonham's auction house in Chester to raise money for KidsAid, a Danish children's charity which helps sick youngsters.

Rooney said he had been "really excited" to be involved in the one-off design.

It features a painting on the rear mudguard of his celebrations after he scored the goal that helped Manchester United clinch the 2011 Premier League title.

Bonham's said the bike sold to an anonymous bidder.

Other popular items at the auction included a Brazil shirt worn by Pele which fetched £3,500.

A collection of 22 Premier League inaugural season hand-signed and match-worn shirts was sold for £18,750.
