Cristiano Ronaldo’s house was robbed of personal items as he played for Portugal on Wednesday night, according to reports.
The Juventus star, 35-year-old, had his £7 million home in Madeira burgled while he was off taking on Spain.
Partner Georgina Rodriguez was also away at Paris Fashion Week.
The chancer is claimed to have snuck into the house after a member of Ronaldo’s staff opened the garage door, according to respected local paper Diario de Noticias Madeira.
Police are said to be on the hunt for the suspected burglar.
A signed Juventus shirt is said to have been among items taken.
A relative of the footballer raised the alarm on Wednesday.
Police have already visited the property and are said to have identified the thief.
The crook has been described as someone who is already known to them and was identified thanks to the property’s CCTV.
No arrests have yet been made.
It was not immediately clear if Ronaldo’s mum Dolores or older brother Hugo, who both live at the seven-floor house, were inside the property at the time.
Juventus striker Cristiano spent the early portion of the coronavirus lockdown staying on the top two floors of the house with Georgina and their children.
The incredible property – purchased in 2015 – boasts incredible sea views, as well as two Olympic-sized swimming pools, a jacuzzi, and a football pitch after a four-year renovation.
But they later moved to a villa with a garden around half an hour’s drive away before flying back to Italy.
Barcelona’s Gerard Pique and former Chelsea frontman Alvaro Morata are among the top footballers whose homes have been targeted by thieves.
