Portugal right-back Joao Cancelo has tested positive for COVID and has been replaced by former Milan defender Diogo Dalot.

The Portuguese FA announced this morning Cancelo, a former Juventus defender, tested positive for COVID and has been replaced by Dalot who spent the last season on loan at Milan.

Dalot played the U21 European Championship with Portugal that saw his side finishing second after losing the Final against Germany.

Dalot played 33 games with Milan in 2020-21.

He had joined the Rossoneri on a dry loan deal from Manchester United.

The player has returned to Old Trafford after the end of his loan spell with the Rossoneri who managed to return to the Champions League for the first time since 2012-13.

Cancelo joined Manchester City from Juventus in a player-plus-cash swap deal with Danilo in 2019.

He had played only one season in Turin playing 34 games and winning one Serie A title and one Italian Super Cup.
