Neymar and two other Paris Saint-Germain stars have contracted the coronavirus, according to multiple media reports.

According to CNN, the other two players are Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes.

The development comes after the Champions League runners-up announced several positive tests.

Earlier on Wednesday, a PSG press release stated, “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.”

While, French media said the three teammates all tested positive after returning from vacation in Ibiza, Spain.

The cases would appear to be linked to a holiday trip that several PSG players took to Ibiza following the Champions League final defeat by Bayern Munich.

The COVID-19 positive tested players now face the prospect of missing the start PGS’s 2020/21 season, which is to begin on September 10 when it travels to face Lens.
The French domestic league season is currently underway but PGS’s start has been delayed because of the side’s run in the Champions League.
