Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has received a huge boost ahead of the weekend’s game against Newcastle United as Bruno Fernandes will not have to self-isolate, after coming in contact with Cristiano Ronaldo while on international duty with his country.
Ronaldo tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week, as announced by the Portuguese FA, and has been forced into quarantine until the next 14 days.
Fernandes, and the rest of the Portugal squad, however, didn’t test positive, even though the midfield ace shared a room with Ronaldo.
Initial reports had suggested Fernandes may have to self-isolate for some days, but a new report on The Telegraph has revealed the player, along with other Portugal stars will be risk-assessed before leaving to their respective clubs.
The 26 year old is available to face Newcastle this weekend, unless he tests positive to the virus.
