Real players will have the virus test and then return to training

Real Madrid players were able to enjoy a few days of rest and vacation after winning the LaLiga title. But now they are preparing to return to work. The players will have COVID-19 tests at their homes this Monday. Then return to training at 11:00 CEST at Valdebebas on Tuesday. Most of the members of Zinedine Zidane’s squad left Madrid to enjoy some days on the coast with their family and share their holiday photos on social networks. Logically, this means that they were slightly more susceptible to coronavirus than during the end of the league campaign when they followed the LaLiga protocol and were regularly monitored at Valdebebas.

As such, Real Madrid wants there to be no positive cases before the players return to training. So that is why the tests are held this Monday at the players’ homes. Assuming good results, they will be back to work on Tuesday when they begin preparations for Manchester City’s second leg on 7 August. The hope is that Marcelo will recover from injury in time for this game. While Eden Hazard may also be closer to full physical fitness than he was during the LaLiga run-in.
