According to Catalan radio RAC1 programme Tú Diràs, five Barcelona players and two members of the coaching staff tested positive for coronavirus after the squad was subjected to tests right at the start of the pandemic.
It claimed the positives showed up in blood tests at the start of the coronavirus crisis, saying all those affected showed no symptoms of the virus and had now recovered.
The information reported by RAC1 has not been confirmed by the club nor has it appeared in any of LaLiga's reports on coronavirus cases. According to the claims, there was a sense of concern within Barcelona's coaching department when the decision was made to return to training and how the players who had tested positive for coronavirus might be more susceptible to injury.
At the moment, Barcelona have been training as normal and the only player in the casualty room is B team player Monchu, who occasionally is called to train with the first team squad.
Barcelona's first match when LaLiga restarts later this month is on June 13 away to Mallorca.
