Sources reveal that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will not complete his self-isolation period until Friday - a day before their Premier League matchday four encounter according to thepeoplesperson quoting The Sun.

This however conflicts with comments coming out of the Portuguese press claiming that the former Real Madrid forward will start training with the squad at Carrington tomorrow.

The Sun says:

"Ronaldo will only have one day’s training with his team-mates after having to isolate for five days in his Cheshire mansion due to Covid rules. Even without the Covid restrictions, the international break would have restricted Solskjaer to just Friday to integrate Ronaldo into the side."

Contrary reports from Portuguese outlet Record reveals

"Cristiano Ronaldo ends his quarantine period today (five days) and does not hide his desire to start working with the Manchester United squad, something that should happen tomorrow."

Fans will however be waiting to see how the whole thing pans out as club football returns in a few days.
