Müller is the latest in a string of footballers to be targeted by criminals. Recently, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his family were robbed in his home in Spain while he was still a Barcelona player. The Chelsea star was also assaulted and even suffered injuries to his jaw due to the home invasion.

Marca also noted that thieves also tried to break into the home of Real Madrid’s Dani Carvajal at the beginning of September. Carvajal said that he believed footballers were easy targets for criminals because the suspects always knew when they would be away playing matches.
