Man Utd & Chelsea legend Falcao in horror burglary gang raid as he has family dinner…days after Ramos’ mansion ransacked | The Sun

FORMER Manchester United and Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao has become the latest footballer to become the victim of burglars.

Last night it emerged that Colombian legend Falcao’s house in an upmarket suburb of Madrid had been targeted by criminals.

Falcao had scored a last-gasp penalty earlier in the day to secure his current side Rayo Vallecano a valuable point at home against LaLiga rivals Mallorca.

As the footy legend enjoyed dinner nearby his home, intruders are said to have taken designer bags, watches and some jewellery before being surprised by an employee and fleeing the scene.

Spanish police have begun an investigation to try to identify and catch those responsible.

Last week, it was announced that former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos’ home was raided while his four children were inside and he was away on Champions League duty with Sevilla.

A gang of robbers had broken into the property while the 37-year-old was enjoying dinner with his wife at a nearby restaurant on Saturday night, El Mundo reports.

They terrified Ramos' kids, aged between three and eight, and the two nannies looking after them, but left them unharmed during the burglary on September 20.

He shares the home near Seville with his model and TV presenter wife Pilar Rubio.

The star couple celebrated their wedding at the country property in June 2019 after a religious ceremony at Seville Cathedral.

Reports in Spain said the burglars only targeted their bedroom after accessing it via the roof and took watches, jewellery, designer clothes and shoes worth more than £300,000.

They also stole five Louis Vuitton bags and four suitcases of the same brand valued at nearly £40,000 – though no one has been arrested in relation to the crime.

Falcao initially struggled at Manchester United during 2014 before transferring to Chelsea and then finding his footing at Monaco.

He signed for Rayo Vallecano in September 2021 after two injury-plagued years at Galatasaray.

Other LaLiga players who have suffered break-ins at their homes include Real Madrid striker Rodrygo and former Barcelona stars Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique.

In June 2019 former Chelsea frontman Alvaro Morata’s wife Alice Campello was confronted by armed intruders while she was alone at their home north of Madrid with a nanny and one-year-old twins Alessandro and Leonardo.

The Italian beauty admitted afterwards she would be “afraid for a long time to come.”

She said in a social media message: “I think this is one of those things that are not easily forgotten, one of those things that makes you realize how much love and life is worth.
