Serie training is tentatively set to resume on May 4, Juventus has also begun to recall its foreign players for a possible club resumption date of May 18.

Cristiano Ronaldo is among the several athletes that chose to lockdown abroad, and it has been reported he will soon be returning to Italy to resume training with his team. However, upon his return he will have to spend fourteen days in self-quarantine before coming into contact with team members, in accord with government health guidelines.

Ronaldo self-isolated in his home town of Madeira with his partner and four children. Although he had previously stated that he would not return to Italy until the threat of infection had subsided, it appears he is responding to the optimism behind the proposed new start date and extension of the 19/20 season.

Despite the return to Italy it is clear that Juventus is not putting overt pressure on players to arrive promptly, providing ample time for safety and quarantine measures to be observed.

Joining Ronaldo in this homecoming is midfielder Miralem Pjanic, and South American players yet to return include , Sandro, , and Higuain.

While it is yet to be absolutely determined if and when Serie A will continue, its top flight clubs are prepping for a hopeful conclusion to the season.
