Neymar tests positive for coronavirus after holiday in Ibiza

PSG star Neymar has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus, with the Ligue 1 club confirming that three players have contracted the virus. 

The Ligue 1 champions and Champions League finalists did not name the players involved, but Angel Di Maria, 32, and Leandro Paredes, 26, are believed to be the other two players to have tested positive, as reported by French outlet L’Equipe

After losing in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on August 23, all three players have recently spent time on holiday on the Spanish island of Ibiza.  

Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori were placed into isolation after a break to Mykynos in Greece.

Jorginho, Ross Barkley, Emerson and Michy Batshuayi have also stayed away from Chelsea’s Cobham training base, although it is not known which six players tested positive.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Wolves winger Adama Traore tested positive ahead of joining up with his Spanish international team-mates on Tuesday. 

However, Traore is now awaiting the results of a second test to determine whether the first was a false positive.

A total of 14 positive tests were recorded from the 12 Premier League clubs who returned to training ahead of the new season two weeks ago.

The new Premier League season starts on Saturday, September 12.
