Several Chelsea stars isolating as coronavirus outbreak hits pre-season plans #COVID19 #coronavirus #ChelseaFC #UK #Greece #Football #Soccer

Coronavirus Alert

A number of Chelsea players are self-isolating as a coronavirus outbreak at the club has put pre-season plans in jeopardy.

The Mail report Chelsea have confirmed several players have tested positive for the virus and have been ordered to stay at home to reduce the risk of infecting teammates and colleagues.

Among those in isolation are Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori – all of whom have just returned from holidaying in Mykonos, Greece, though it is not known whether any have contracted Covid-19.

Frank Lampard has already begun preparations for the new season at Chelsea’s training HQ in Cobham but will have to wait to be joined by those in quarantine.

Each player currently in isolation has undergone a test to determine whether they are carrying the virus ahead of their return to training.

In the cases of Abraham and Mount it could even scupper England’s plans as both players are due to report for Three Lions training on Monday ahead of next month’s Nations League fixtures after being included in Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Chelsea are not the only team to record positive coronavirus tests since returning for pre-season.

Sheffield United, West Ham and Brighton were among 12 different clubs to record a total of 14 positive tests between them.

Liverpool are also believed to have had one member of their travelling party carrying the virus after testing shortly after landing in Austria.

While Chelsea’s on-field plans aren’t going quite as planned, off the field they are doing some impressive business in the transfer market.

Ben Chilwell became the latest star to join Lampard’s ranks after completing his £50million move from Leicester on Wednesday.

Former PSG defender Thiago Silva is expected to be the next player to arrive as he is set to undergo a medical on Thursday ahead of a proposed free transfer.

The Blues are also poised to snap up Malang Sarr on a free following his release from Nice, while Kai Havertz is in line to move to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen in a club record deal worth £100million, with an announcement expected this week.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba tests positive for coronavirus #COVID19 #coronavirus #PaulPogba #ManchesterUnited #France #Football #Soccer

Coronavirus Alert

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has tested positive for coronavirus.

He has been left out of France’s squad with Eduardo Camavinga earning a call-up in his place.

Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele has also tested positive, report L’Equipe.

Les Bleus take on Sweden and Croatia in the Nations League on their return to action, but will be without the Premier League duo.

Pogba’s United teammate, Anthony Martial, is in the squad.

France boss Didier Deschamps said: “I had to make a last-minute change to this list, because Paul Pogba was planned to be in this list but unfortunately for him, he took a test (for COVID-19) yesterday which turned out to be positive today, so at the last minute he was replaced by Eduardo Camavinga.”

The news comes after several Chelsea stars were forced into isolation after a breakout of Covid-19 derailed their pre-season plans.

Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori are among those in isolation, having all recently holidayed in Mykonos.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has begun pre-season at Cobham, but will need to wait to be joined by those players in quarantine.

Abraham and Mount were both named by Gareth Southgate in the England squad for upcoming Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark.

Other clubs have also been hit with positive tests since the end of the season.

Sheffield United, West Ham and Brighton were among 12 different clubs to record a total of 14 positive tests between them.

Liverpool are also believed to have had one member of their travelling party carrying the virus after testing shortly after landing in Austria.
