Higuain to follow Ibrahimovic tests?

Gonzalo Higuain could be allowed to start training with Juventus on Monday if using the same COVID-19 testing system that Milan adopted for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The striker was the last foreign player to return to Italy, having been given extra time due to family issues in Argentina.

He flew back on Friday and should go into a 15-day quarantine at his home in Turin.

However, Tuttosport claim Juve are hoping to follow the example set by Milan with Ibrahimovic to cut that down dramatically.

Ibra came back from Sweden last week and was given two swabs in three days, both of which came back negative, so the local authorities gave permission for him to cut the quarantine short and return to training.

Juventus may well ask to adopt a similar strategy, giving Higuain two swabs with a 48-hour gap to secure an early release.

Italy’s infection rate has fallen dramatically over the last couple of weeks, allowing the lockdown measures to be eased.
