According to La Repubblica, Gonzalo Higuain tried to ‘skip’ isolation and depart to Argentina with his family, in spite of two Juventus teammates proving positive for coronavirus.
The newspaper’s online edition reported that police stopped him at the Caselle Airport in Turin as he tried to board a private jet, where he showed them a prove that confirmed he was negative for COVID-19.
However, as the disease has such a long gestation period and two teammates – Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi – tested positive, Gonzalo Higuain was authorized to stay in self-isolation for at least another week.
As regular flights to Argentina from Italy are avoided, La Repubblica also stated in the report that Pipita and his family rather crossed the border into France, having access to move to Spain, from there flying to South America.
The report states it is not confirmed as to whether Juventus were aware of Gonzalo Higuain’s travel plans or not
