Real madrid set to miss pre-season because of positive test to coronavirus

Karim Benzema has had to delay his return to training at Real Madrid after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 33-year-old striker was on holiday in France when he was found to have the virus, and it means he must isolate before heading back to Spain. A short statement from his club read: “Real Madrid CF confirm that our player Karim Benzema has tested positive for COVID-19.”

Benzema has been Madrid’s leading scorer in each LaLiga season since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus in 2018, scoring 21 goals in 2018-19 and 2019-20 before improving to 23 goals last term, adding nine assists.
