The whole squad of Spanish football club Barcelona will be undergoing PCR testing today as two of its staff members tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

According to a statement by the Club on its Website; it said that the Club has informed about the positive cases to the relevant sports and health authorities. Furthermore, the whole squad will undergo further PCR testing on Tuesday.

As a result, the training session planned for today has been postponed. The new time for training and the subsequent press conference ahead of Athletic Club v FC Barcelona will be announced today.

On the other hand, Barcelona are reportedly planning some smart transfer business as they line up a trio of Bosman signings for next season.

The Spanish club is said to be targeting Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Manchester City defender Eric Garcia and Lyon forward Memphis Depay, all of whom are free agents at the end of the season.

As per reports, all three are top players who would surely strengthen this Barcelona squad, so to get all of them in without paying a penny in transfer fees really would be excellent work by the Spanish club.
