Angel di Maria suffered a scare at his home after burglars attempted to break in this week.
Police confirmed that a number of offenders tried to smash the back door of the house in the Chelford Road area of Prestbury, Cheshire while the midfielder and his family were eating dinner there on Saturday evening.
They failed to get inside the house and fled the scene after the alarm was raised.
Di Maria’s wife, Jorgelina Cardoso, deleted her Instagram account following the incident which occurred hours after Man United’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford.
The family were later transferred to a hotel in Manchester while police began their investigation.
It is a shame to hear about the incident given that Di Maria has spoken about how happy he is at the club and in Manchester in the past. For a new player and his family to have suffered from this sort of crime will almost certainly change how safe they feel.
As a consequence of the incident, bodyguards were placed at Di Maria’s house to give an extra level of security and peace of mind for Di Maria and his family.
