Internazionale striker Mauro Icardi was robbed at gunpoint this past weekend while attempting to park his car in Milan. 

He was approached by two men wearing motorcycle helmets and carrying a gun, who demanded that the footballer hand over cash and his watch, which is reportedly worth €30,000.  

Icardi was attempting to park his car on  Elvezia Avenue in Milan on Saturday night after his side's 1-0 win over Genoa. The Argentine recently shared an image of his fancy timepiece, from Hublot, while on his way to training.

According to Italian news agency ANSA, Icardi refused to hand over any cash, but the men still managed to get the watch off him and make their getaway. 

Never fear, however, as he has already gotten himself a replacement, and has opted for a different colour scheme this time around.
