Detectives investigating the terrifying Boxing Day raid at Jack Grealish's home fear they won't be able to find the gang behind the theft that saw £1million worth of watches stolen, MailOnline can reveal. 

The Manchester City star and his financee Sasha Attwood, 28, have been warned by his advisers that 'it's just not worth the risk' for him to store expensive watches and jewellery in their new Cheshire home in case they get targeted again.

A source said: 'It's not ideal. Like anyone else Jack wants his favourite things close by, so he can use them and wear them whenever he wants. 

'But he realises it does put him and Sasha at risk, so he's taking on the advice and keeping many of his items away from his home.

'He can access them easily and quickly - and if it makes Sasha safer when he's away then it's a massive weight off his mind.'

The decision comes weeks after City manager Pep Guardiola told the media players were receiving new advice designed to help protect them.

Meanwhile MailOnline also understands detectives probing the Grealish break in are concerned they have missed the 'golden period' for finding who was responsible.

Another source added: 'There's a growing concern the case won't be solved and Jack will never see his stuff again. They've got leads, but little fresh information has come in in the past fortnight.

'Jack remains ever hopeful, but these gangs aren't fly-by-night merchants. They are professional. They get in. They get out. And it's very hard to find them afterwards.'

The protective measures come just weeks after MailOnline revealed the England and Manchester City ace's fiancee had been left 'terrified' by the Boxing Day raid and no longer feels safe on her own home. 

Sasha was with Grealish's family on December 26 when burglars struck, stealing up to £1m in jewels and watches.

The gang fled with £1 million of watches and jewellery from the £5.6 million Cheshire property.

It is based in an area called the 'Golden Triangle', repeatedly earmarked in the last three years by professional gangs from Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Peru.

Up to 500 burglars from those south American countries travel to the UK every year to target homes in Cheshire, the Home Counties, London and Surrey.

Grealish, 28, was playing in City's 3-1 away win against Everton during the time of the break-in.

It is thought 10 relatives - including Sasha - were watching the match before being alerted by barking dogs and noises.

Sources previously told MailOnline that such crimes after often carried out by 'serious organised crime networks' who have 'huge pools of intelligence about what players are doing and when'. 

They added that gangs will pay 'big money' to people that could tip them off with inside information and help organise a raid. 

Sasha was said to be 'in pieces' following the break-in, which happened just days after Grealish moved into the £5.6million

Speaking just days after the raid, the source said: 'One theory being looked at is that removal workers were followed during the days that Jack was moving into the property.

'There were vehicles coming and going for days on end in the run-up to Jack and his girlfriend getting the keys.

'For burglars looking to carry out a raid, this is like red meat. Police will therefore be working backwards to see if there are any clues at all in the days leading up to the raid.

'Another area they will look to get to the bottom of is whether the gang had any inside information.

'These raids are carried out by serious organised crime networks, often based overseas, who have huge pools of intelligence about what players are doing and when. They pay big money for tip-offs to help carry out raids like this.'

Sasha was said to be 'in pieces' following the break-in, which happened just days after Grealish moved into the £5.6million home.

Another source added at the time: 'Sasha is in pieces over this. Sasha has had to deal with death threats and online abuse over and over again during the time she's been with Jack. 

'But this feels very different. For people to come into her new home in this way has left her terrified. She's not been on her own since it happened and right now doesn't want to be.

'Jack is particularly angry about the impact this has had on Sasha. They've been together nearly half of his life and he loves her to bits.

'He will now do anything to protect her. They've got their dream home but it means nothing if she's not happy and Jack wants her to feel as safe in it as possible.'

MailOnline has contacted Grealish's representatives.
