Angel Di Maria becomes one of the latest football players to encounter burglars attack whilst he was having a good time with family and teammates.
The former Manchester United failure was reportedly relaxing with his family and a Juventus teammate when the event took place. He has previously been targeted by burglars while playing for Manchester United and at former club Paris Saint-Germain.
After an alarm went off and police rushed to the location following a tip-off from a private security company, one of the three criminals was apprehended.
The other two offenders are reportedly being sought by detectives.
The attempted break-in happened on Thursday at 7.30 p.m. in the same Turin neighborhood where Cristiano Ronaldo and his family resided while he was a player for Juventus, according to the Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
Unverified reports said a gun had been discovered close to the location and that neighbors had heard bullets.
Angel Di Maria has yet to post anything on social media about his hat-trick of assists in his team’s 3-1 Champions League victory over Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday.
In March 2015, the Argentinean man of 34 years listed his £4.1 million Prestbury property for sale, a month after trespassers attempted to break into the opulent home while he was having dinner there with his wife Jorgelina Cardoso and daughters Mia and Pia.
After the attempted break-in, which took place less than a year after Di Maria joined United for a British transfer record sum of £59.7 million, they moved to an opulent hotel.
He was replaced during a PSG game in March of last year when it was discovered that his home had been broken into while he and his family were inside.
Following the raid, which saw the attackers purportedly escape with more than £400,000 in jewelry and watches from a safe, three men and a kid were detained.
Despite initial claims that Jorgelina and their two daughters had been abducted, it eventually turned out that they were actually inside the home, but they hadn’t realized there had been a break-in until afterward, and they had no contact with the thieves.
The teammate who is rumored to have been at Di Maria’s villa at the time of the attempted break-in is Dusan Vlahovic, who scored one of Juventus’ three goals on Wednesday.
Angel Di Maria, who endured a disappointing campaign at United, has now assisted on more goals in Champions League history than Lionel Messi and is only four behind Ronaldo, who has the most assists with 42.

He joined Manchester United in the summer of 2014 for a record-breaking £59.7 million after Real Madrid and he won the UEFA Champions League in 2014. He agreed to a €63 million, four-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2015.
Football stars that have dealt with robbery in 2022
Some of the most well-known athletes in the world today are footballers. They have enormous social media followings, and their fan base is quite passionate about following the trends they establish. However, they are also some of the wealthiest people on the planet, and their clubs and numerous brands have bound them to costly contracts.
This season, some football players have regrettably been the target of burglaries and have had to deal with criminals who have bad motives. Here are five well-known people who overcame similar hardships.
Currently, Swedish footballer Victor Lindelof of Manchester United is ranked third in terms of value. An unfortunate incident happened when the player was away on duty competing for the club against Brentford in the Premier League.
While his wife, Maja Lindelof, and his two children were present, some trespassers broke into their home.
Two masked guys followed the Arsenal defender into the garage as he entered the house following a night out with a friend.
He pulled his £45,000 Mercedes into the driveway of his north London home, and when he got out, a masked guy with a baseball bat threatened him and demanded his possessions.
However, in a brave display, Gabriel fought off the assailant who became hostile and held his own against him. Abderaham Muse was eventually identified as the criminal when his hat was discovered at the scene and further investigation.
After the event, he was given a five-year prison term last year. The incident happened in August 2022.
Did you know that the Frenchman was robbed in person earlier this year? Robbers got into the Real Madrid striker’s home in the San Sebastian de los Reyes suburbs while he was on duty, leading the front line against Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Fortunately, when the incident took place in January, Benzema’s home was unoccupied. At the time of the allegation, the police withheld all information regarding the worth of the stolen goods. The French striker was replaced by Luka Jovic at the hour mark after failing to have an influence on the game.
The event occurred during his time on the field for the Red Devils during their decisive Champions League second-leg match against Atletico Madrid.
Overall, Pogba’s day was unfortunate as he was not only eliminated from the tournament after a close 1-0 loss, but also had his home’s security and safety violated by criminals. The theft took place in the last minutes of play and lasted less than five minutes.
The 29-year-old’s horrific experience occurred when both of his children were present at home and the burglars were robbing the house.
Pogba and his wife hurried home from Old Trafford with no way of knowing that they were sound sleeping and uninjured during the incident.
The Frenchman’s £3.5 million property in Hale, Greater Manchester, was raided, and he described it as his “worst nightmare.” It was eventually established that his most valuable possessions were stolen from a safe that contained them.
Joao Cancelo, a fullback for Manchester City, suffered what was arguably last season’s most perilous run-in with thugs and thieves. The atmosphere was festive, as it typically is around Christmas and the New Year was drawing near, but it quickly became threatening for the defender and his family.
The City player was assaulted by a gang of four on December 30 in the evening, and the encounter left him with scratches and bruises close to his right eye. He and his wife Daniela Machado are the parents of their daughter Alicia, who is two years old. The incident left the family feeling terrified.
The group fled the residence with all the jewelry in it, according to a statement made by the Portuguese on social media. But just two days later, he returned to the field and started for Pep Guardiola’s squad in their valiant triumph over Arsenal, displaying great class and professionalism.
