Higuain set for Juventus return

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to fly out from Argentina tonight, meaning the full Juventus squad could be training together by the start of June.

The players who returned to Turin from abroad must have a 15-day quarantine period, followed by a double swab test and a blood test to ensure they are free from COVID-19.

Adrien Rabiot arrived from France yesterday afternoon to begin his quarantine, while Higuain is expected back tomorrow morning, following an overnight flight from Buenos Aires.

Higuain was given permission for this extra time for personal reasons, as his mother has cancer.

Most of the Bianconeri will be ready to resume group training from Monday, including Daniele Rugani and Paulo Dybala, who tested positive in March.

Cristiano Ronaldo landed back from Portugal on May 4, so will be allowed to train from Monday or Tuesday, quickly followed by Wojciech Szczesny and Matthijs de Ligt.

La Gazzetta dello Sport points out Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi returned to Italy on May 6, so should be able to train later next week, while Brazilians Danilo, Alex Sandro and Douglas Costa have another week to go.

Higuain and Rabiot won’t be able to train with their teammates, or leave their homes, until at least May 29-31.
