The Portuguese media continues to follow Cristiano Ronaldo’s steps until he finally gets to play for Manchester United again.

Following the striker’s suspension from the national team, he’s now been officially released by manager Fernando Santos and is ready to join the Red Devils.

On Thursday afternoon, RTP reported that the player was ready to fly to Manchester, and despite his will to start training as soon as possible, he’d have to quarantine for five days.

The outlet claimed it wasn’t known if Ronaldo is fully vaccinated or not, but that wouldn’t matter either, since these are rules from the Premier League.

Now as Correio da Manhã comes up with a similar story, they confirm that the 36-yer-old is getting ready to face Newcastle United on the 11th of September.

The newspaper writes that despite his wish to stay with Portugal’s squad as much as possible, he knows his early release will give him extra time to help sort ‘the bureaucracy he’ll need to fulfil’ when landing in England.

Correio da Manhã says Ronaldo had the two jabs from the vaccine, and would be clear from quarantine.

However, they claim ‘the Premier League is more demanding than the British government’, and after travelling from a country of the yellow list, he must quarantine for five days.

Then he’ll be ready to start working for the upcoming Premier League game and his second debut for Manchester United against Newcastle.
