Earlier in the week another positive case showed up within the Brazil national team, which could have implications for a number of Premier League footballers.
Who involved with international football thinks it’s a good idea to commingle players from various bubbles?
As confirmed by Brazil national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, Palmeiras midfielder Gabriel Menino has tested positive. The 20-year-old is symptomatic but had been training alongside the rest of his team-mates all week.

We won’t know anything definite until Telles takes another test for COVID-19, which is expected today.
This could also a blow to his preparations with United and with Luke Shaw injured I doubt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to react too well if his new left-back’s recovery is pushed back a further two weeks.
