Cristiano Ronaldo traveled to England on Thursday, September 2, after he was given permission by the Portuguese FA and following the UK’s decision, he will have to isolate himself like any other person flying from Portugal to the UK.

Ronaldo is expected to arrive in Manchester on Friday, meaning he won’t be able to join training with United until Wednesday at the earliest — just three days before their next Premier League clash against Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

Infoexpert24 understands that Cristiano Ronaldo will have to test negative for COVID-19 on the second and fifth day of his return in order to be released from isolation and then be allowed to train with his new teammates.
