Lyon star Memphis Depay victim of €1.5M burglary

Olympique Lyon star Memphis Depay has been the victim of a high priced burglary.

L'Obs Magazine reports Depay was 'burgled on Friday night' as he played for Lyon in their Ligue 1 match against Nice.

The damage amounted to around €1.5million (£1.34m), according to reports in France, though police have yet to confirm the true value of the stolen possessions.

The 23-year-old former Manchester United winger, who has made 39 appearances and scored nine goals for Holland, isn't the first high-profile footballer based in France to be targeted by criminals while playing.

Depay isn't shy in flaunting his wealth on his Instagram account, where he regularly poses wearing expensive clothes and jewellery, while he is also fond of sports cars.
