And according to Spanish news media outlet El Chiringuito, the Juventus attacker had conducted four tests in six weeks with the latest result coming out positive.

The 26-year-old recently spoke about the disease and explained how he had difficulty in breathing.

Dybala and his girlfriend looked to be feeling much better but it seems the former Parlemo star is struggling to overcome the illness.

“Luckily [we are] much better, these days we do not have any symptoms,” said Dybala.

“I had stronger symptoms, I got tired very quickly, when I wanted to train, I was short of breath after five minutes. There we noticed that something was not right and through the tests the club did we were told that we were positive.

“From there we had more symptoms, such as cough, tired body and when we slept I felt very cold, but from the club they had told us that we were going to be fine so we had to be calm.”

Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi are Dybala’s teammates who had confirmed cases of the disease.

Serie A teams are scheduled to return to training on Monday, May 4, after Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte gave the approval.
