Real Madrid Mariano Diaz tests positive for COVID-19 ahead of Manchester City clash

Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz has tested positive for COVID-19.

The club's official statement says the player is in "perfect health and is complying with the protocol of isolation at home".

The news put Madrid's Champions League last-16 second-leg tie with Man City at the Etihad Stadium on August 7 in doubt.

Mariano will certainly miss the encounter he has to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

It's still unclear if the UK Government will allow the La Liga giants to enter the country, especially if more players test positive for coronavirus in the next round of testing.

As a reminder, Zinedine Zidane's men were beaten by Pep Guardiola's side 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg in February.
