Breaking: Ronaldo trapped

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly ‘stuck’ in Madeira – with his private jet unable to collect him and return him to Italy.

The Juventus superstar was due to return to Turin and meet up with his team-mates after spending quarantine on his native island.

But according to Portuguese TV channel TVI, Ronaldo’s £30MILLION Gulfstream G650 private jet is grounded in Madrid.

Spanish travel restrictions means the plane cannot take off from the capital.

The plan was to collect Ronaldo from the Atlantic island and then travel straight to Italy where Ronaldo would meet with team-mates after the Italian gave Serie A the green light to restart the season.

According to the report, the jet attempted to take off three times but was blocked – leaving Ron potentially stranded on the island for the immediate future.

The Italian government had given Serie A teams the green light to return back to training after a host of sides announced their intentions to link up again on Monday.

Ronaldo had been keeping himself busy during the lockdown sharing footage of his intense workouts on social media.

No date has been given for the restart of football in Italy’s top division following the country’s lockdown on March 10.

It is believed Serie A footballers could be back in training on May 4, but it’s not been confirmed if this will include players who travelled abroad.

Ronaldo, who joined Juventus for £100million in July 2018, will be expected to stay in isolation for 14 days when he eventually returns to Italy.

Juve forward Paulo Dybala tested positive for Covid-19 four times in the past six weeks.
