POLICE investigating a £1million raid on Jack Grealish’s mansion suspect an overseas gang was involved.
Cops have “zero leads” on the break-in at the footie star’s home despite exhaustive inquiries.
And they are now increasingly convinced the burglary on December 27 — as he played for Man City but 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 toof 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.”
