Valverde tests negative and can travel to London with Madrid

Real Madrid was waiting for Fede Valverde and he already knows that he will be able to count on El Pajarito. The white club has received the necessary negative result in the Covid-19 test so that the Uruguayan can travel and face Chelsea in the semifinal round of the Champions League that takes place at Stamford Bridge this Wednesday from 9:00 p.m. .

This past Monday, the Uruguayan underwent a PCR test in which he provided an inconclusive result. Thus, the Real Madrid medical services decided to carry out another PCR this Tuesday at seven in the morning to know the status of the player's infection and to know if it is available. Finally the confirmation that it was available arrived. A respite for Zidane thinking about the decisive battle of Stamford Bridge.

Fede Valverde has been in isolation since April 18, when it was known that he had been in contact with a positive for Covid-19. The player, who previously tested negative, ended up testing positive for coronavirus on April 21 and remained in quarantine.
