PSG Goalkeeper Donnarumma, Partner Attacked, Robbed In Paris

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and his partner, Alessia Elefante have been attacked and robbed at their home in Paris. 

The incident is said to have occurred overnight on Thursday and into the early hours of Friday morning.

Sources told Agence France Presse that the couple were tied up during the attack but were able to escape and take refuge at a luxury hotel located not far from their home at 3:20 am before they were taken to a hospital.

The sources added that Donnarumma sustained light injuries, while Elefante was unharmed after the robbers made off with €500,000 ($556,430) worth of jewellery, luxury bags and watches.

In a statement affirming the incident, the agency of the 24-year-old Italy international wrote: "Raiola is aware of an incident concerning Gianluigi Donnarumma and his partner in the early hours of this morning.

"They are in shock at what happened but doing well under the terrible circumstances. Both are assisting the police with their enquiries. 

"Gigi, his partner and Raiola will be making no further comment until the police complete their investigation. 

"We ask you to respect Gigi and his partner's privacy at this time."

The prosecutor's office added: "An investigation has been opened on charges of armed robbery in an organised gang and aggravated violence following the events that took place overnight at Mr Donnarumma's place." 

Donnarumma moved to Paris in 2021 after completing a move to Parc des Princes from AC Milan on the back of helping Italy to continental glory at Euro 2020.

The goalkeeper, who has made 72 appearances for the Parisians, was due to join the Paris St-Germain squad later on Friday ahead of the club's first pre-season friendly match against Le Havre and a tour of Japan and South Korea.

He becomes the latest high-profile footballer to be targeted by gangs while playing for PSG.

Other players who have been targeted in the past are  Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Thiago Silva, Dani Alves and Eric Choupo-Moting.
