Star striker Karim Benzema has tested positive for Covid-19 as reveled by Real Madrid.
The Liga giants, who are now working under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti, are in the process of piecing together their plans for 2021-22.
A France international forward will play no part in pre-season training for the foreseeable future as he must now take in a period of self-isolation.
A brief statement on the Blancos’ official website reads: “Real Madrid C. F. confirm that our player Karim Benzema has tested positive for Covid-19.”
He will not be cleared to rejoin the rest of Ancelotti’s squad before a negative test has been posted.
Benzema has already made a delayed return to the Real fold following his involvement with France at Euro 2020
