Mexican soccer star Rafael Marquez is seeking a buyer for his New York apartment just three months after he was released prematurely from his $4.6 million a year contract with the New York Red Bulls team, The Real Deal has learned.

Marquez, who moved to the Mexican team Leon after a disappointing two seasons with the New York team late last year, has listed his Chelsea pad at 257 West 17th Street for sale, according to StreetEasy. The property, a six-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom apartment on the seventh floor, is listed by Kirk Rundhaug and Paige Neuhauser of Douglas Elliman and is asking $10.95 million.

Marquez purchased the 4,000-square-foot apartment for $6.39 million in 2010, records show, several months after he joined the Bulls on a 3.5-year agreement. His time playing for Gotham was plagued by absences as a result of injury and suspension, it was previously reported, and he took the field in only 48 percent of the matches during his stint on the team.

His pad, which was featured in Elle Décor Magazine before he purchased it, features 10.5-foot ceilings, an office and modern conveniences such as a central sound system, zoned air conditioning and steam heating.

Rundhaug declined to comment on the listing.
