The superstar has finally returned two negative tests for Covid-19 and is preparing to be returned to the fold.

The star became frustrated as he was forced into self-isolation with the virus
Ronaldo season was halted when he was found to have the virus while on international duty with Portugal.
But now his manager says multiple negative tests means he’s ready to come back.
Andrea Pirlo is quoted in France24 saying: “The negative result of the second swab has arrived, so today Cristiano Ronaldo will be called up to the team.
“He is fine and has been training individually this morning. I don’t think he will start from the beginning, we will see how it goes tomorrow.”
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has missed four games for the Old Lady following his initial positive test.
His absence was felt as a meek Juventus fell to defeat against Barcelona in Europe this week.
The Portuguese legend returns in time to give Pirlo’s team a shot in the arm.
The Serie A champions are currently 6th after dropping a handful of points in their opening five games.
While they are still unbeaten, they have drawn games against Verona and were reduced to 10 men in both of their other draws against Roma and Crotone.
Pirlo called the match against Spezia ‘must win’, with his side trailing AC Milan by three points in the early table.
