    AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for coronavirus, the Serie A club have confirmed.

    The announcement comes just hours before Milan are due to take on Norwegian side FK Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday, according to Sky Sports.

    The club say that they have informed the “relevant authorities” and that Ibrahimovic will now enter a period of quarantine at home.

    Milan added that no other members of the squad have tested positive in the latest round of testing, although defender Leo Duarte did return a positive result on Wednesday and has already begun isolating.

     

    The 38-year-old former Sweden international signed a new one-year deal at the San Siro this summer following his successful return to the club from the LA Galaxy in January.

    He is not the only Milan player to test positive, with defender Leo Duarte testing positive on Tuesday.

    The entire squad and staff had been re-tested following Duarte’s positive earlier this week.

    Both men must now spend time in quarantine, and Ibrahimovic’s absence will be a major blow to Stefano Pioli’s men.
