Daily Sport quoting Il Gazzettino claims the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will self isolate when he returns to Italy.
Although the former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward is expecting another test result to be sure, he is however not showing any symptom of the infection. Katia said on Instagram:
“If Cristiano Ronaldo needs to be the one to wake up the world, I have to say that this Portuguese is a predestined, someone sent by God. Thank you!!!
“I believe quite a few thousand will start believing so much as me in this pandemic, in the tests, and in the measures taken... largest fraud, I have ever seen since I was born."
Ronaldo is, however, likely to miss games against Crotone and Dynamo Kyiv this weekend and next week.
He is most likely to be back for a reunion against Lionel Messi later in the month as they both renew rival in the UCL.
According to UEFA’s protocols, Ronaldo must be Covid-free for at least one week before the fixture.
