Serie A side Juventus feel ‘betrayed’ by Paulo Dybala for breaching coronavirus rules.

Dybala, along with Weston McKennie and Arthur have been suspended by the club for attending a party together during the international break.

Paulo Dybala has not played for Juventus since January

McKennie is alleged to have hosted a gathering of around 20 people at his villa, which has left Juventus chiefs furious, the Mail claim.

Dybala apologised on social media by writing: “I know that at such a difficult time in the world with COVID-19 it would have been better to not make a mistake, but I was wrong to stay out for dinner.

“It was not a party, but it was a mistake nonetheless and I apologise.”

The report adds Juve boss Andrea Pirlo is preparing to sell Dybala, whose contract expires next summer.

The Argentina forward has been linked with big-money moves to Tottenham and Manchester United in recent years.

Dybala has scored 70 Serie A goals for Juventus in six years

And both clubs could revive their interest with a cut-price bid this summer.

Dybala, who tested positive for coronavirus last year, has struggled for form with just three goals in 16 appearances this season.

The 27-year-old has not played a single minute of competitive football since injuring his knee in a 3-1 win against Sassuolo in January.

Dybala has won five Serie A titles with Juventus since joining the club from Palermo in 2015.
