Alaba joins Benzema, who tested positive last week, on the absentee list for Ancelotti's squad during the remainder of pre-season
New Real Madrid signing David Alaba has tested positive for Covid-19, the club confirmed Wednesday.
The Austrian, who signed for the 13-time European champions on a free transfer from Bayern Munich this summer, will self-isolate following the news.
Alaba joins forward Karim Benzema, who tested positive last week, on the absentee list for Carlo Ancelotti's squad during the remainder of pre-season.
Real, who said Tuesday they had agreed a deal to sell defender Raphael Varane to Manchester United, lost their first friendly of the summer to Scottish champions Rangers Sunday.
They travel to Alaves in the first game of the new La Liga season on Aug. 14.
