​Juventus Star Paulo Dybala Has Tested Positive For Coronavirus 'For The Fourth Time In Six Weeks'

Paulo Dybala has shockingly tested positive for coronavirus for the fourth time in six weeks, according to stunning reports.

The 26-year-old Juventus star revealed in March that he and his partner, Oriana Sabatini, had tested positive for the disease amid the pandemic in Italy.

And now Spanish programme El Chiringuito TV reports that Dybala has taken a total of four tests in six weeks due to his initial diagnosis.

According to reports, the Argentine forward's latest testing for coronavirus came back positive.

Dybala, who was linked with a move away from Juve last summer, opened up about his painful experience of having coronavirus and how he 'struggled to breathe.'

The Argentina international explained: "Luckily [we are] much better, these days we do not have any symptoms.

"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."

Dybala was one of the three Juventus players to have contracted coronavirus, with Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani also testing positive.

Serie A has been suspended since March after the outbreak of coronavirus in Italy.

However, Italian teams are now scheduled to return to training on 4th May as Italy begins to ease certain restrictions in the country.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has said players can "undertake training individually from 4 May, in groups from 18 May, and then we'll evaluate if there are the conditions to allow the season to be completed."

The 55-year-old added: "We need to complete all the discussions to ensure that if we do reach that stage, we'll do so in the utmost safety and security.

"We are passionate about sport and don't want our athletes to get sick.

"I'm passionate for football. Like many Italians, I initially found it strange that the championship could be interrupted or suspended, but I think that even the most ardent fan understands that there wasn't an alternative."
