Real Madrid Champions League clash against Manchester City could face a serious a threat after the British government have reportedly sanctioned a bid to exempt sports stars to a travel quarantine of 14 days, which means the second leg of the clash at the Etihad Stadium is in doubt.

Under the adjusted dates in the UEFA plans, the reverse fixtures of the Champions League round of 16 were due to be played on the weekend of August 7, with the rest of the competition completed in the month.

However, the British government are set to veto plans to make sports stars exempt from any travel quarantine, according to an exclusive report from the Sun – meaning, should Real Madrid travel from the Spanish capital to face Pep Guardiola’s side, they would be forced into a 14-day quarantine under government law.

Manchester City has returned to the City Football Academy for their first round of coronavirus tests, before the Premier League permit any form of group training, albeit non-contact.
