Paris Saint-Germain will increase security at the homes of its players after the robberies that took place this weekend in the house of Angel Di Maria and in the apartment of Marquinhos' father, sources from the club confirmed to "EFE".
According to information from the house of Di Maria, jewelry worth 500 thousand euros was stolen, while 2,000 euros in cash and luxury bags were taken from the home of Marquinhos' father.
French prosecutors have launched an investigation into the two robberies.
In the last 18 months, PSG players have been under systematic targeting of robbers. During this period, victims of domestic robberies were Mauro Icardi, Sergio Rico, Thiago Silva, Eric Maxim Chupo Motting and others.
Paris Saint-Germain have decided to pay for the presence of bodyguards in the homes of their players for some time, and one or two agents will be assigned to each of them 24 hours a day.
Some players, such as Killian Mbape and Neymar, have their own bodyguards, but even in these cases, vigilance will be strengthened with additional security from the club.
PSG's intention is to prevent this type of incident, as it affects the team's emotional calm at a key time in the season in which the club will play in the Champions League quarterfinals and is three points behind leader Lille in the French championship.
These thefts can contribute to the distraction of players.
As early as 2015, PSG stepped up surveillance in the homes of their stars after the jihadist attacks that France suffered and which psychologically affected the players and their families.
