Cristiano Ronaldo ruled out of Barcelona clash

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to keep everyone guessing when it comes to his future, with the Juventus superstar dropping another cryptic hint at his retirement plans.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out of Juventus’ Champions League clash with Barcelona after returning another positive test for COVID-19.

The 35-year-old has been unavailable for selection since testing positive for the virus while on international duty with Portugal on October 13.

There had been hope that the forward would return negative during the latest round of testing allowing him to make the reunion clash with Lionel Messi at the Allianz Stadium.

Ronaldo has missed three matches so far and will remain in self-isolation until he can return a negative test for the novel coronavirus.

UEFA protocol states that a player must test negative 24 hours prior to kick-off to be safe and available for selection.
