PSG fear Neymar and Keylor Navas have coronavirus

On Monday 31 August, Paris Saint-Germain confirmed that Angel Di Maria and Leo Paredes tested positive for coronavirus and are currently isolation.

Both players had gone on vacation to the Spanish island of Ibiza, following PSG's loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final. 

On Wednesday the club confirmed that three players had tested positive, with L'Equipe reporting that Neymar is one of them.

PSG worried about more cases

The problem is that the players who tested positive didn’t travel alone. Di Maria, Leo Paredes and Neymar were also vacationing with their teammates Ander Herrera, Mauro Icardi, and Keylor Navas. PSG is worried that more players will test positive for Covid-19.

According to ESPN reporter Julien Laurens, the next player most likely to test positive for coronavirus is striker Mauro Icardi but PSG has not confirmed the news. Currently the club is waiting to receive the tests from all the players that traveled to Spain ahead of the start of the new season. 

PSG could ask to postpone its game against Lens scheduled for 10 September if more cases are confirmed because the French Federations has established a law that stipulates that if a team has more than four players with coronavirus, they should have their match suspended.
