Viktor Lindelof will automatically ring in the new year after wife Maja Nilsson reveals he has been moved to a different floor of their home.
The 27-year-old Sweden captain tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month, shortly after applying a heart monitor to his health scare during the game against Norwich.
The Lindelof family didn’t have much to cheer about during the festive season, with youngest son Francis also spending time in the hospital after contracting viral meningitis.
And now, with Maja revealing that her glittering New Year’s Eve party has been cancelled, Lindelof isolates herself on the third floor of her home.
The United defender had on Wednesday given a positive update on his health – adding that he hopes to be back in action soon.
But, giving her update on the Lindelof household, Maja wrote: “We’re fine!
“Victor is isolated upstairs and me and the kiddos are downstairs and out in the garden.
“I am negative as of now but getting tested regularly.

“Just hope I don’t get this and especially the kids!
“Thanks for asking guys!”
But Maja confirmed that she still felt close to her husband, as she could hear him “playstation playing and yelling” despite being two floors up.
Unfortunately for the family, their New Year’s Eve plans went awry.
Sharing a photo of herself in a wool jacket, yoga pants and well, Maja said: “I think this will be my NYE outfit.
“We had to host a New Year’s party with all our friends and I’ve bought everything from disco lights, hired a chef and got at least 50 helium balloons…
“My guess [eldest son] Although Ted Lewis will have the ball.”
In a short video message on Instagram, Lindelof previously said: “I just wanted to check in real and say thank you for all of your messages over the past few weeks.
“I really appreciate it, so thank you very much for that.
“At the moment, I’m at home, I feel fine and hope to be back with people soon.
“Thank you very much once again, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I hope you have a great new year too and stay safe.”
Lindelof will miss United’s game against Burnley on Thursday night, with Rafael Varane and Harry Maguire scheduled to start.
