Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez loses three luxury watches worth £500,000 as he gets robbed at his penthouse


Manchester City and Algerian winger, Riyad Mahrez, has become the latest footballer to be targeted by thieves during a £500,000 raid at his penthouse.

The £200,000-a-week midfielder, 29, was out when the raid occurred on Friday, May 29, 2020.

According to the Sun, the burglars carefully tracked Riyad Mahrez before they broke into his penthouse and got hold of a key fob to gain access.

The thieves reportedly stole £230,000 Richard Mille timepiece, a £40,000 Rolex Daytona, and a £35,000 Rolex Day-Date.
