Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly concluded plans to rejoin his Juventus teammates following the Italian government's decision to ease lockdown.

The 35-year-old was allowed to fly back to his hometown in Madeira for self-isolation following the high rate of death caused by deadly coronavirus pandemic.

It would be recalled also that the Old Lady decided to close all football-related activities after some of their players tested positive for the virus.

First, it was Danielle Rugani, and then Blaise Matuidi but both are said to have fully recovered from the infection.

A few other Premier League superstars also contracted the dangerous disease but there are good reports from them owing to their recoveries.

However, with the government in Italy releasing dates to ease lockdown while they allow activities to return to normal, Ronaldo is also ready to resume training with his teammates.
