The same report claims police are still investigating the incident and Roma have offered the support out to the player.

Smalling, who joined the Italian club from Manchester United on a permanent deal last year, was not involved in Roma’s Europa League tie with Ajax at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night due to a knee injury. 

The defender has been playing in Rome since the summer of 2019, joining on an initial loan deal before making the move permanent 12 months later.

He lives with his wife Sam, 35, a glamour model and former ‘Page 3’ girl from Manchester. The couple have been married since June 2017 and welcomed their young son Leo just before they moved out to the Italian capital.

The reported incident is the latest in a series of cases where intruders have targeted the homes of Serie A footballers, managers and other sporting personalities over the past year.  

Earlier this year, the home of Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie was burgled while the American was playing for the Serie A side against SPAL in the Italian Cup quarter-final on January 27. 

According to Sky Sports Italia, those responsible for the attack managed to take some football boots, designer clothing and other valuable items.
