PSG to pay for 24/7 security guards for stars after Di Maria and Marquinhos' families caught up in terrifying burglaries

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are set to pay for round-the-clock security for their stars after Angel Di Maria and Marquinhos' families were caught up in terrifying break-ins.

On Sunday night, Di Maria's home was the subject of a 'violent robbery' with his wife and kids inside as the the winger played during the 2-1 defeat at home to Nantes.

Simultaneouly, Marquinhos' parents had their home broken into – with the defender's dad claimed to have been 'battered in the face, chest and ribs'.

The break-ins are just the latest in a string of burglaries among PSG players in recent years.

Mauro Icardi had his home burgled in February while he was playing in an away clash against Lorient.

Thiago Silva, Dani Alves and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting have also all had their properties burgled during their time at the Parc des Princes.

And in a bid to keep them and their loved ones safe – as well as some much-needed peace of mind – the club now laying on security for their stars, say L'Equipe.

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are claimed to already be paying for substantial security at their homes.

Police are now looking into Sunday's pair of attacks to see if they are linked.

On Sunday evening, PSG sporting director Leonardo was spotted by TV cameras making contact with Mauricio Pochettino – with the boss quickly subbing Di Maria.

The ex-Tottenham boss then updated Di Maria about the concerning situation, with the Argentine forward immediately leaving the stadium in tears.

Initial reports claimed his family were being held hostage.

It later emerged Di Maria's wife and two daughters had been upstairs when the break-in occurred and only found out about it afterwards.

And on Monday, Marquinhos' wife Carol Cabrino said her in-laws were recovering after their own 'shock' incident.

L’Equipe said Marqinhos’ dad – Marcos Barros Correa – was hit several times in the face and chest by the intruders, who are believed to have confused the property with the footballer’s.

Cabrino revealed: “The house of Marquinhos’ parents was burgled while his family was inside.

“But no one suffered and everyone is OK and recovering from the shock.”
