Shkodran Mustafi's home was burgled to the tune of €1million while he was upstairs, according to reports.
Former Arsenal star Mustafi's luxury villa in the Spanish town of Betera, near Valencia, was targeted in the early hours of Monday morning.
As reported by Spanish newspaper Levante, the criminals entered his property via a golf course next door, taking cash, jewellery and clothes before making off with the loot.

While many such burglaries of footballers happen while the stars are playing matches or at training, this crime is unusual in that Mustafi, now at Levante, was said to be on the top floor of his villa while the goods were taken.
The 30-year-old reportedly only noticed them when he saw them running away with bulging bags.
Spanish police may fear that Mustafi's own Instagram posts attracted the attention of the criminals.

After suffering relegation with German side Schalke last season, the former 20-cap Germany international signed on a free transfer for Levante and could face the same fate this campaign.
Alessio Lisci's side currently lie 19th in LaLiga, six points from safety and level on points with bottom side Alaves.
In their five games remaining this season, the Frogs play mid-table Valencia and Rayo Vallecano, high-flying Real Sociedad and Real Madrid, and a crunch clash with Alaves on the penultimate week of the season, at the Ciutat de Valencia on May 15.
