A statement on the Juventus website read: “Paulo Dybala has undergone medical tests that revealed a positive result for Coronavirus-Covid 19. He has been in voluntary home isolation since Wednesday, March 11.
“He will continue to be monitored, following the usual regime. He is well and is asymptomatic.”
Dybala becomes only the third Juventus player to test positive to the virus after Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi . Rugani became the first serie A player to test positive and sent the Juventus officials into quarantine protocols and the players into self isolation.
Matuidi on Tuesday tested positive to the virus as he revealed but he was not exhibiting any symptoms
Juventus have already started granting players permission to return home to be with their extended families with Douglas Costa the latest to head home to Brazil joking Cristiano Ronaldo in Madeira, Miralem Pjanic in Luxembourg, Sami Khedira in Germany and Gonzalo Higuain in Argentina respectively.
Italy had become one of the worst affected countries hit by the virus in Europe with travel restrictions and bans imposed on gatherings all over the country
