Sanchez & Vidal set for quarantine due to coronavirus outbreak if they travel to Chile for World Cup qualifiers

Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez will have to go in to quarantine for 14 days if they return to Chile for their national team's opening 2022 World Cup qualifiers later this month due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Chilean health minister Jamie Manalich has confirmed anyone who travels from Spain or Italy will be quarantined upon arrival into the country.

Sanchez is currently spending the campaign on loan at Inter in Italy, where the virus is severe. Vidal, on the other hand, is playing for Barcelona in Spain where the outbreak is continuing to rise.
