Atletico Madrid's January signing Moussa Dembele tests positive for coronavirus

Atletico Madrid has suffered yet again another massive blow after January signing Moussa Dembele tested positive for coronavirus. 

Dembele, who is currently self-isolating at home signed for Madrid on loan from Lyon during the January transfer window until the end of the season. The striker now joins fellow forward Joao Felix, defender Mario Hermoso, and winger Yannick Carrasco in isolation as they have all tested positive for the virus.

Dembele and Felix remain a doubt for the club's Champions League first-leg tie of the last 16 against Chelsea later this month. 

Diego Simeone's men have 50 points from 19 games and hold a 10-point advantage at the top of the standings over closest title rivals, Barcelona and Real Madrid with a match in hand.
