Inter Milan have announced they will head into next weekend’s derby against AC Milan without Ashley Young after testing positive for COVID-19.

Young, who wasn’t selected for the England squad over the international break, is self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19 at Inter on Saturday.

The Serie A giants released a brief statement confirming the defender’s diagnosis and status. They revealed no more information afterward. But his hopes of playing in the upcoming ‘derby della Madonnina’ are practically nil.

“Inter announces that Ashley Young tested positive for COVID-19 following the test carried out yesterday [Saturday] in Appiano Gentile,” read a statement on the club’s website.

“The English footballer is already in quarantine at his home.”

Inter and AC Milan are set to meet for their first derby of the season next Saturday on October 17. Both sides head into the encounter eager to keep up their promising starts, having reached the top-four in the standings prior to the international break.

Young, meanwhile, had started in two of Inter’s opening three games in the Serie A and provided an assist in the 5-2 win over Benevento on September 30.

The 35-year-old, who joined Antonio Conte’s side in January from Manchester United in a €1.7m deal, will hope to make a quick recovery to aid the club in pursuit of a first league title since 2009/10.

Although there are reports in the Italian press stating the Milan derby may not take place amid more positive cases.

Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan, and Roberto Gagliardini have all tested positive recently at Inter.

Leo Duarte and Matteo Gabbia, on the other hand, have suffered the disease at AC Milan. While the Rossoneri’s star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic has only just recovered from COVID-19 himself.
