Edwin Cardona has already signed, but Racing will have to wait for him: he tested positive for Covid

Racing Club waited a long time for Edwin Cardona and will have to wait a little longer: the Colombian has already signed his contract, but he tested positive for Covid and will remain isolated until he is discharged.

The Colombian midfielder signed his contract for three years on Tuesday, in what is one of the most expensive purchases in the history of the Academy. Fernando Gago, who was his teammate at Boca Juniors, especially requested it at the wheel.

Cardona was expected this Wednesday in morning training, but for having maintained close contact, he was isolated as a precaution. Subsequently, a PCR test was carried out that confirmed his contagion.. This is the second time he has contracted the disease. The previous one was at Xeneize and his recovery took a little longer than usual, because it caused myocarditis.

The skilled Colombian will seek to redeem himself at the Academy, after a year in which he was involved in extra-sports controversies, for which Boca decided not to use the purchase option of his pass. Cardona will try to get the attention of the coffee team in the year of the World Cup in Qatar.
