Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey’s house was the target of a fresh robbery attempt following a previous break-in just a few days before.
According to Cadena SER, intruders were met with a relative of the 26-year-old on Friday and fled from the Boadilla del Monte property without stealing any valuables.
The incident comes just days after the residence was broken into on Monday, when Partey’s housekeeper had been present, as reported by Marca.
The Ghanaian international had been in Moscow for Atletico’s Champions League clash with Lokomotiv.
Real Madrid star Casemiro was also targeted by robbers, when his house was ransacked during Saturday’s Madrid derby at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The 27-year-old’s wife and child were present at the time.
In the wake of the news, the Spanish giants warned their players not to post photos of their possessions on social media. They also advised against revealing the interior and exterior of homes, and any private trips on allocated free days.
Los Blancos suggested that players should hire private security, and have purportedly employed a firm to guard the homes of concerned stars after the spate of burglaries.
A number of high-profile names have been the victims of the alarming trend of robberies in Spain.
Casemiro’s teammates Lucas Vazquez, Isco and Karim Benzema have reportedly been targets in the past, along with current manager Zinedine Zidane.
