Neymar tests positive for coronavirus along with two other PSG stars

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus after returning from a holiday in Ibiza. Angel Di Maria and and Leandro Paredes have also contracted the virus following their trips to the party island.

Most of PSG’s squad will spend this weekend with their respective international teams as the Nations League gets underway.

Non-European players have been given the week off and many chose to use the time to get away.

However, French publication L’Equipe claims a trio of PSG players have tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to the club.

They will apparently have to quarantine for seven days meaning they will have little time to prepare for the Ligue 1 opener against Lens on September 10.

PSG released a statement this afternoon which read: “Three players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols.

“All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days.”

Neymar, Di Maria and Paredes were all instrumental in helping PSG reach their maiden Champions League final last month.

The French giants ultimately fell at the final hurdle with a 1-0 defeat against Bayern Munich.

Neymar has often been linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes as Barcelona are keen on re-signing the 28-year-old.

But the attacker insists he sees his future in Paris as he vows to win the elusive European trophy.

“I am staying at PSG next season!” he told PSG’s official website.

“And with the ambition to return to the Champions’ League final, this time to win it.

“I like this idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club.

“If people were doubting the presence of PSG as a great European club, those doubts died in Lisbon.

“We left this city with the feeling of being renewed and confidence in our capacity to win it one day to write an even greater history.”
