REAL MADRID star Dani Carvajal has become the latest footballer targeted by armed intruders.
Police are investigating an attempted break-in to his home near Madrid by two masked men who allegedly carried iron bars.
A police source said: “The incident happened around 2am on August 30. Nothing was stolen.”
The criminals fled the scene after realizing the Real star’s alarm system had been activated as they tried to gain access to his property.
Spain international Carvajal, who was not at home at the time, called in detectives after checking CCTV footage following the activation of his alarm system.
Details of the new incident involving Carvajal came hours after former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke his silence following a terrifying burglary at his home near Barcelona.
Aubameyang and his wife Alysha Behague were threatened and handcuffed in front of their two children Curtys, 11, and Pierre, six.
The Barcelona frontman suffered a broken jaw after being hit in the face with an iron bar, although some reports from Spain say the weapon used was the butt of a pistol.
Aubameyang is expected to be out of action for several weeks and could possibly undergo surgery – but he is still expected to transfer to Chelsea.
Going under the knife would see him back in action sooner than waiting for his jawbone to heal naturally.
The four masked intruders stole £600,000 in cash and jewelery after forcing their way into Aubaymeyang’s home in Castelldefels, a 30-minute drive south of Barcelona.
The 33-year-old French-born Gabon international broke his silence on Wednesday’s terrifying incident, saying his family were “no longer safe in our own home”.
He said in an Instagram post: “Hey guys, thank you so much for all the messages.
“Sunday night some violent cowards broke into our house and threatened my family and kids, just to steal stuff.
“They injured my jaw but I will recover in no time and thank God no one else was physically hurt.
“The feeling that we are no longer safe in our own home is hard to understand and describe, but as a family we will overcome this and hold on stronger than ever.
“Thank you for all the support, it really means a lot to us.”
His wife posted the footballer’s message on her own social media.
