In light of the recent incident involving Julian Draxler, we take a look at the recent cases where PSG players have been victims of burglary. The likes of Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and more have suffered robberies in recent times.

Donnarumma, in fact, was the subject of a scary incident recently as his home was intruded. The goalkeeper and his partner, were tied up while the robbers looted valuable possessions.

The Italian managed to go to a nearby hotel with his partner and reported the incident to the police. A source told ESPN on the matter:

"A police investigation has been opened for armed robbery in an organised gang and aggravated violence following the incidents that happened overnight at Mr. Donnarumma's flat."
