Argentine Juventus striker Paulo Dybala underwent medical checks on Thursday at J Medical, a clinic owned by his team, to evaluate a calf problem suffered during training with the Argentine national team.
After finishing the qualifying game for the Qatar 2022 World Cup against Uruguay, Dybala returned to Turin aboard a private plane and went to J Medical this afternoon, as seen in videos circulating on the internet.
At the end of the exams, Dybala reassured the fans present and told them that he feels “good”, although it is possible that coach Massimiliano Allegri decides not to line him up on Saturday in the league game against Lazio to avoid relapses.
Medical examinations ruled out serious injuries, but did detect muscle overload, Italian media reported.
Dybala, who turned 28 on Monday, played eleven games and scored six goals this season, three in Serie A and three in the Champions League.
The return would be on Tuesday against Chelsea
The most likely date for Dybala to compete again is next Tuesday, when Juventus, already classified for the round of 16, will play at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea the first position in group H of the Champions League.
