Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed on the official website that three players and one staff member have tested positive for the coronavirus. The French giants are scheduled to return to training this week ahead of two national cup finals and the return of the Champions League’s decisive stages.
A statement on PSG’s website read: “These individuals had exhibited symptoms during the confinement period when they were not in contact with each other. They are no longer contagious and will resume their training program.” PSG will return to training in small groups from Thursday.
The club has also confirmed that two players will not return to training in Paris. Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier have rejected the club’s offer of a short-term extension to the end of August, meaning they will be out of contract on July 1st. Brazil defender Thiago Silva will return to training as he is still in talks with the club over a contract extension.
