Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) trio Neymar, Angel Di Maria, and Leandro Paredes have all tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports in France.

The Ligue 1 club confirmed on Wednesday that three players returned a positive Covid-19 result and L'Equipe later revealed who the unfortunate players were, with the trio understood to have all enjoyed a recent holiday in Ibiza.

"Three Paris Saint-Germain players have confirmed positive Sars CoV2 tests and are subject to the appropriate health protocol," the club said in a statement.

"All of the players and coaching staff will continue to undergo tests in the coming days."

The French champions on Monday said that two of their players had tested positive for the virus and gone into quarantine.

The new Ligue 1 season has already begun but PSG’s fixtures were delayed in order for the players to recover after the Champions League final. As it stands, PSG’s fixture against Lens will still go ahead but the match could be postponed if a fourth player from the French champions is tested positive for Covid-19.
