However, French publication L'Equipe claims a trio of PSG players have tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to the club.

They will apparently have to quarantine for seven days meaning they will have little time to prepare for the Ligue 1 opener against Lens on September 10.

PSG released a statement this afternoon which read: "Three players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols.

"All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days."
