Mariano Diaz has tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday according to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz has tested positive for COVID-19 and is a doubt ahead of their champions league clash against Manchester City.
According to Real Madrid, a test was conducted for the entire squad and the 26-year-old came out positive.
He is in “perfect health” in self-isolation at home and will be unavailable for the Madrid trip to Etihad on August 7.
A club statement read: “After the Covid-19 tests carried out individually on our first-team yesterday by the Real Madrid Medical Services, our player Mariano has given a positive result.
“The player is in perfect health and complying with the sanitary isolation protocol at home.”
Mariano has only made seven appearances this 2019/20 season for Zinedine Zidane’s side with five of them coming off from the bench. He is yet to feature in the champions league for Los Blancos.
Real will be hoping to overturn a 2-1 deficit as they visit Man city in less than 2 weeks’ time.
