well the thing is, it is entirely possible, ive brought the theory about the SO6P actually being an uzumaki or the creator of the uzumaki, so if that is true, then naruto have within him the capabilities to develop the rinnegan naturally. ppl usually use madara as proof that you need the ems to get the rinnegan but they forget that the SO6P is proof that you dont need the ems. im certainly assuming that naruto have some lineage from the SO6P, the big question, and it has been asked b4, where minato comes from, if he is somehow related to the older brother, and kushina is related to the younger brother due to the uzumaki's relationship with the senju and we know that the senju are descendents from the younger son, then naruto will be able to develop the rinnegan naturally, atleast in theory.
