Ronaldo heading back to Turin

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly heading back to Italy after being diagnosed with Covid-19 while on International duty with Portugal National Team.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo will follow the quarantine period in his home in Turin.

Italy’s Scientific Technical Committee has recently reduced the quarantine period from 14 to ten days.

The former Real Madrid star will miss Juventus' next two games against Crotone and Dynamo Kyiv but could be eligible to play against Verona if he'll have a negative swab test after the quarantine period.

The 35-year-old, however, is likely to miss Juventus' Champions League game against Barcelona on October 28 as the Uefa protocols calls for a player to be COVID-negative for at least seven days before he can be allowed to play in a Champions League or Europa League match.

According to Sky Sport, Ronaldo will arrive in Turin in the afternoon and will be transported by ambulance to the place where he will be quarantined, which is likely to be his home in Turin.
