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

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

The plan was set to collect Ronaldo from the Atlantic island and then travel straight to Italy.

Ronaldo, who will have to spend two more weeks in quarantine in Italy, would then meet with team-mates after the Italian government 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.

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 has 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 has tested positive for Covid-19 four times in the past six weeks.
