The club confirmed the news in a statement on Friday, adding that he is asymptomatic.

Umtiti, who has been out of action with injury, is not with the squad that has travelled to Lisbon, Portugal and plays Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final on Friday night.

“After the PCR tests carried out on Thursday the first team player Samuel Umtiti has tested positive for COVID-19.
