Attempted break-in at Wayne Rooney's €7m mansion as he played testimonial

Wayne Rooney's Cheshire mansion was targeted by thieves as he played in his testimonial match at Old Trafford this week.

Police said that Rooney's family home in Prestbury was hit by raiders as the striker, his wife Coleen and their three sons Kai, Klay and Kit were at the tribute game against his first club Everton on Wednesday.

But the thieves reportedly triggered the alarm at the Manchester United star's £6 million property and fled.

Police descended on the house and conducted a full search of the local area but were unable to find any trace of the offenders.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said they were investigating and appealed for witnesses.

In a statement, police said: "Cheshire Police has launched an investigation following an attempted burglary at an address in Prestbury.

"The incident is believed to have occurred at approximately 9.00pm on Wednesday 4th August in the Chelford Road area.

"Officers went to the address and conducted a full search of the local area and were unable to find any trace of the offender."
