Gianluigi Donnarumma, an Italian football player, and his partner were robbed and attacked in their Paris flat. Police sources claim that the couple was held hostage at their flat in the eighth district of the city after being targeted by numerous people. Days before the custodian was scheduled to depart for preseason friendlies, this incident occurred.

The Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper was “lightly injured”, said the source, who was not authorised to speak publicly.

The thieves fled after stealing jewellery, watches, and other luxury goods worth an estimated 500,000 euros ($550,000), the source said, confirming a report by the Actu17 website, which first reported the break-in.

Donnarumma and his partner raised the alarm at a hotel next to their home.

Several PSG players have been targeted in robberies over the last few years, including Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Angel Di Maria, Dani Alves, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Sergio Rico, and Mauro Icardi.

Four men were given prison sentences in January and February this year over burglaries at the homes of Marquinhos and Di Maria in 2021.
