And they are now increasingly convinced the burglary on December 27 — as he played for Man Citybut while relatives and his fiancée Sasha Attwood were at the property — was the work of a gang with foreign links.

Reports have previously suggested it could have been an inside job.

But a security source said: “The fact police have made so many inquiries locally, and come up with nothing, has made them think it is linked to a foreign gang.

“That, of course, makes it much harder for them to be traced, especially if they have flown into the UK and then fled abroad.

“The talk among players and their security teams is it could be linked to a South American gang, who have been known to target homes of the wealthy here before.

“It makes it seem increasingly unlikely it will be solved.

“Jack will then become the latest in a long line of footballers who have had their properties raided with no one caught.”

The raiders struck at the £5.6million Cheshire pad as Grealish, 28,played in City’s3-1 win at Everton.

Terrified Sasha, 27,heard movement upstairs and raised the alarm but the gang fled within minutes with watches and gems worth £1million.

Footie stars have been plagued by raiders, amid fears that “away-day” gangs are jetting to the UK specifically to carry out burglaries.

Last August two Chileanwomen who flew to Britain as “burglary tourists” and raided a businessman’s home were jailed.

Cheshire Police confirmed they had made no arrests and inquiries continued.
