Rodrygo’s house in La Moraleja was robbed during the Real Madrid vs Osasuna Copa del Rey final, media reports said on Monday.

The authorities are currently conducting an investigation into a recent burglary at the residence of Rodrygo Goes, the esteemed Real Madrid football player. Situated in the upscale neighborhood of La Moraleja in Alcobendas, a town in Madrid, the house was targeted during the early hours of Sunday. This unfortunate incident occurred shortly after Rodrygo’s stellar performance in the Copa del Rey final, where his impressive double-goal secured victory for the white team in Seville.

The discovery of the burglary was made by a diligent member of the property’s private security staff, who promptly alerted the National Police. Upon their arrival, the law enforcement agents were met with disarray within several rooms of the house, indicative of the intruders’ presence. Valuable clues were carefully collected by the investigators, although the exact extent of the stolen possessions remains undisclosed at this time.

The assailants took advantage of the absence of both Rodrygo and his parents, who also reside in the luxurious La Moraleja residence. The footballer and his parents had traveled to La Cartuja to witness the final match firsthand, where Rodrygo’s exceptional performance contributed significantly to Real Madrid’s triumph, securing a 2-1 victory over Osasuna.

In the midst of these unsettling events, it is important to note that the Real Madrid team is facing another critical challenge.

Unfortunately, this incident is not isolated, as other Real Madrid players, including Karim Benzema and Dani Carvajal, fell victim to similar robberies in the past year. These crimes were committed by organized and specialized gangs, operating with a distinctive “modus operandi” of targeting players while they are engrossed in competitive matches with their respective teams.

The prevalence of such incidents has raised concerns and created an atmosphere of panic within the football community. Authorities are actively pursuing the perpetrators, aiming to bring them to justice and ensure the safety and security of the players and their families.
