Spanish newspaper El Mundo has revealed that Real Madrid and France defender Raphael Varane lost about £60,000 worth of valuables to burglars who attacked his Madrid home on Wednesday night while he was away playing football for his club side against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA champions league.
The robbers made away with 12 watches, cash, jewelry and clothes, and the footballer upon returning to the house, called police and the club’s security team, informing them that he didn’t put on his security alarm before leaving his house.
According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, ‘the burglars entered the property through an annex which was being renovated before entering the house by forcing the front door open.’
Police have informed Varane that they have a couple of leads for their investigation, with an Audi A4 seen outside the annex and a witness has also come forward to say they saw ‘three or four people taking a case out of the house and putting it in the car’.
Police believe the gang responsible had been watching the house for several days and knew Varane was away on Wednesday when they struck.
