Dani Ceballos has told TVE that the entire Arsenal team have tested negative for Covid-19 as the players return for individual training sessions.
This is part of a phased process, which will ultimately lead to the recommencement of the 2019-20 Premier League season.
The Spanish international has even revealed a time frame for that, suggesting that they’ve been told the games will resume a week later than the original date of June 12th.
Speaking this week, the 24 year old said, “48 hours ago we passed the tests, and the truth is that the whole team has tested negative.
“We are going to start a week late with respect to what is being talked about in Spain, which is June 12th, and we are going to start the league on the 20th.”
His is a situation Arsenal will have to clarify as he is on loan from Real Madrid and would need to sign an extension to that deal – assuming agreement can be found between the clubs as well.
However, it seems clear that he’s looking at a future in Spain rather than England, saying, “I am a Real Madrid player, and any player in the world would like to play for Real Madrid.
“I have a contract with them for three more years and they are the ideal team to succeed. The best of Dani Ceballos is yet to come, settling in a team, feeling important … feeling like a leader, which is what I really like.”
