According to TYC Sport, Tottenham Hotspur duo Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso will fly to Croatia after the international break in order to avoid quarantining in a hotel back in England.
Argentina is part of the UK Government’s red-list, which means that the players who return from the country would have to serve a 10-day quarantining period.
The Premier League have thus prohibited players from travelling to red-list countries during the international break.
However, Lo Celso and Romero, along with Aston Villa pair Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia, have decided to ignore the ruling and report to international duty for Argentina’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela, Brazil and Bolivia.
TYC Sport have now revealed that instead of isolating in a hotel in the UK on their return, the four players will instead fly to Croatia following the international break and train in the Balkan country for ten days.
They would then be able to rejoin training straight away when they return to their respective clubs as the UK government does not stipulate any quarantine for those arriving from Croatia.

Given the facilities that are available in the lodge at Hotspur Way, Lo Celso and Romero would have likely been able to isolate and train individually at the training ground anyway.
So the fact that they will be training in Croatia instead does not really make much of a difference as they will still miss the same number of matches.
