Burglars invade the 70-acre mansion of Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne.


A gang broke into the mansion of Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne on Saturday, December 16. The intrusion occurred between 4 pm and 9 pm, and it was De Bruyne’s wife, Michele Lacroix, who discovered the break-in. According to Belgian news outlet HLN, items were taken during the burglary, though specific details remain undisclosed. The burglars utilized a stepladder to access the first floor of the property located in Bolderberg, Heusden-Zolder, in east Belgium.

De Bruyne, currently with City’s squad in Saudi Arabia for the Club World Cup, was away when the burglary took place. The midfielder acquired approximately 70 acres of land in the hamlet near Zolder in 2015, and the mansion, constructed with white natural stone and featuring a swimming pool, was completed in February 2019.

An official from the local prosecutors’ office commented, “Everything was turned upside down, so it is not yet entirely clear what the exact disadvantage is. But at first glance, it appears that mainly jewellery has been stolen. The investigation into what exactly happened is still ongoing. The forensic laboratory has already arrived on site for a trace investigation, and a camera and neighborhood investigation will follow. It is therefore not yet clear who the perpetrators are.”
