Spanish police have made an incredible find in the last several days. The residence of Rafael Nadal, the 22-time Grand Slam champion, and his wife Maria Francisca (or rather Cisca) Perello, was reportedly targeted by a criminal gang recently arrested, according to the publication Diario de Ibiza.
The criminals’ blueprints and paperwork were found by the authorities. There was no shortage of high-profile targets for the criminals: Argentine soccer sensation Lionel Messi, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, was one of them.
In the last two weeks, these individuals robbed Marco Verratti of up to £2.5 million from his vacation house in Italy. According to The Mirror, police have linked this band of burglars to at least 15 prior break-ins.
According to a press release, “Police officers disrupted a criminal ring that targeted luxury villas for theft. After a well-known footballer was robbed, the robbers were discovered (precisely Marco Verratti).
It was after this that several police searches were carried out in the provinces of Alicante, Murcia, and Málaga. ”
The news about Rafa Nadal and Lionel Messi soon followed.

Iris Gruenewald, the CEO of the real estate company Balearic Properties, recently spoke out about Rafael Nadal’s residence.
To paraphrase, “He paid four million euros in 2013 for a house in Porto Cristo in Manacor with a little over 1,000 square meters of living space. At 7 thousand square meters, it’s a large area near the lake.
For seven years, Rafa Nadal entirely redesigned and dismantled the property, according to a report from the real estate firm Balearic Properties.
