Man City star has £500,000 worth of valuables stolen by thieves at his home

Man City star Riyad Mahrez has £500,000 worth of valuables stolen by thieves at his home becoming the latest footballer victim of this crime.

Burglars carefully tracked him before sneaking into his penthouse and stealing three watches to order.

Items stolen included what has been described as a Richard Mille timepiece similar to one that burglars stole from Dele Alli’s place two weeks ago.

Also taken along with the £230,000 Mille watch was a £40,000 Rolex Daytona, a £35,000 Rolex Day Date and more than £50,000 in cash, Cartier bracelets and rare football shirts worth up to £150,000.

Raiders got into Mahrez’s home by using a key fob to gain access.

A source said: “Riyad is among an elite group who own a Mille.

“They are the ultimate dressing room status symbol.

“He fears he was being watched beforehand.

“There’s no doubt it was stolen to order.”

Mahrez was thankfully out at the time of the gang sneaking into his Manchester city centre apartment.

A letter sent to residents said: “Four apartments were accessed without authority using a fob which had general access throughout the building.

“The fob in question is now in our possession, has been fully deactivated and cannot be used again.”

Earlier this month Dele Alli was hurt and robbed of three watches after two thieves broken into his £2million North London home as he played pool with girlfriend Ruby Mae.

Another Premier League player, Jan Vertonghen, also had his place robbed in March while he was away playing for Tottenham in Germany.

In January, Crystal Palace’s Mamadou Sakho lost more than £500,000 of items in a burglary.

A Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman said of the raid on Riyad Mahrez: “At around 5pm on Friday April 24, police were called to reports that four separate apartments had been burgled at a city centre block.”
