The Argentine becomes the third Bianconeri player to test positive for the virus.
Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has confirmed he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatin have tested positive for coronavirus, though he says neither of them are displaying any symptoms.
The Argentine forward was tested for the disease last week and is currently self-isolating at home.
“Hi everyone, I just wanted just to inform you that we have received the results for the Covid-19 test and both Oriana and I have tested positive. Luckily we are in perfect conditions. Thanks for your messages.” Dybala posted on Twitter.

A statement on the Juventus website read: “Paulo Dybala has undergone medical tests that revealed a positive result for Coronavirus-COVID19. He has been in voluntary home isolation since Wednesday 11 March.
“He will continue to be monitored, following the usual regime. He is well and is asymptomatic.”
Dybala is the third Juventus player to test positive for the coronavirus after Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi.
