Rafael Nadal’s home targeted by a criminal gang, the police react


A recently arrested criminal gang has targeted Rafael Nadal’s Mallorca mansion, where he lives with his wife Maria Francisca Perello, according to a notebook found by police at a suspect’s home and leaked to Diario de Ibiza newspaper.

The note about Nadal read: “PortoCristo. Nadal Mallorca”, as reported by The Mirror. Along with Nadal, Lionel Messi’s mansion was also a future target. Fortunately, the police arrested the 7 suspects who also stole 2.5 million pounds from the summer residence rented by Marco Verratti.

Additionally, police have linked the gang to 15 other burglaries, according to The Mirror. Spanish police reacted to the arrests: “Officers have dismantled a roving criminal organization specializing in breaking into luxury villas following a robbery at the home of a well-known footballer.

Seven people belonging to an ethnic Albanian criminal gang who had just stolen £2.5million worth of designer watches and jewelery have been arrested. Items stolen during the raid on the footballer’s villa were recovered from the car two of the alleged gang members were using after their arrest.

Three searches were then carried out in Malaga and one in Ibiza and evidence was found linking the gang to 15 other raids on luxury villas in the provinces of Alicante, Malaga and Murcia”. Note that the statement above was released before the evidence showing Messi and Nadal as targets was reported.
