With the Italian Serie A set to return in May, Juventus and Inter Milan stars Miralem Pjanic and Alexis Sanchez are set to fly back to Italy as Serie A clubs are imminent to resume training by May 4.
Several Serie A players who flew out of the country to their native countries after the shut down of the league due to the novel coronavirus, having completed their 14-day mandatory quarantine at home, have returned in the last few days, and the Sanchez and Pjanic are set to follow suit.
Juventus midfielder Pjanic posted on social media to announce that he was getting on to a private jet heading to Turin. Inter Milan winger Sanchez is also said to be putting himself together to leave Chile for Italy on Monday.
In accordance with measures put in place by the FIGC, players who will return from the break will have to self-isolate for 14 days before they resume training, and the duo would like to return in time to be able to meet the requirements before training hopefully resumes on May 4. Training will be preceded by blood tests and swabs between April 27-30 for the Serie A players.
Baring any unforeseen eventualities, football in Italy will resume probably starting with the Coppa Italia semi-finals first. Serie A fixtures will then follow from early June and conclude by mid-July, all things being equal.
