David Alaba, a defender for Real Madrid, has tested positive for COVID-19.
On Wednesday, Real Madrid issued a statement on its website announcing the news.
The statement read, “Real Madrid C. F. would like to notify that our player, David Alaba, has tested positive for COVID-19.”
This comes less than a week after Real Madrid made Alaba their official player.
Alaba, a former Bayern Munich player, is the second member of the Real Madrid squad to test positive for COVID-19 this summer.
Karim Benzema is still in Lyon after submitting a positive test result moments before his return to Real Madrid was set to take place.
Alaba has been placed in isolation for the next few days.
