The club is awaiting the repatriation of the winger, who according to the protocol must be in quarantine for five days. Madrid are attentive to tests and to players who may show symptoms.

The possibility of the outbreak

Dani Carvajal’s positive Covid test revealed the fears Real Madrid had before traveling to Saudi Arabia for a potential week-long concentration in a foreign country. He is losing sides and anxiety has risen in recent hours about a possible outbreak that could lead to a cascade of casualties, as happened in mid-December when he lost Modric, Marcelo, Lunin to the coronavirus (which he repeated, he was also infected a few months before), Bale, Rodrigo, Asensio and co-coach Davide Ancelotti. All this in less than 48 hours. The club’s main focus is to deal with the Saudi authorities how Carvajal can return home, traveling to the Middle East with a full vaccination schedule and in order. The country’s legislation sets a minimum quarantine period for exceptional situations such as this one at five days. If he has to meet this deadline, he will have to return to Madrid alone next Tuesday. However, tests will be done again to make sure it was not a possible false positive, as has recently happened to Courtois and Fede Valverde. Florentino Perez, who was present in Riyadh, chatted with Ancelotti and inquired about the winger’s situation, as well as the rest of the headwear.

Praise is not excluded

As for the Austrian, Madrid remain hopeful that he will reach the final and his muscular discomfort is expected to improve between today and tomorrow. Alaba did not stay at the white hotel and moved as another one to Prince Faisal Stadium to train alone with recuperators and to be treated by physiotherapists, who brought materials to the stadium to treat players with minor physical problems, such as the case of Valverde, who wore a colorful bandage on left knee, although he could train normally.
