Juventus feel BETRAYED by Paulo Dybala and want rid of him as soon as possible after illegal lockdown party at Weston McKennie’s house with the Italian giants hoping to secure an exchange deal before Argentine walks away for nothing next summer
Juventus have been left feeling betrayed by Paulo Dybala after his recent controversies and are hoping to broker an exchange deal this summer.
Dybala, 27, landed himself in hot water after attending an illegal lockdown party at the house of team-mate Weston McKennie last week – and has been suspended.
With the club having taken stern action, it has now emerged that their hierarchy are keen to offload him in just a few months rather than allow him to walk away for free.
Juventus have been left betrayed by Paulo Dybala and want to ship him out in an exchange deal
Both Andrea Pirlo and president Andrea Agnelli were left infuriated by Dybala’s behaviour, it is understood.
The Serie A giants are disgusted, having stood by their ace’s side when clearing up the source of his knee pain, but believe there is now no way back for him.
His future, which was explosively thrown into the air when the Italian police broke up the gathering at McKennie’s home, now lies away from Turin.

Juventus are believed to be afraid, however, of letting Dybala slip away for nothing and therefore will attempt to sell him as part of a swap.
Jorge Antun, Dybala’s representative, is currently in Argentina and hasn’t travelled to Italy for several months.
There were suggestions that the club wanted to tie down Dybala to a new deal – but his injury woes initially scuppered any prospect of renewal.
It is also a firm belief at the Old Lady that any lavish fresh terms must only take place on the conditions of the club and not its players.

Vice president Pavel Nedved has admitted that Juventus ‘will look at every market opportunity’ – and it is understood that Dybala is now officially in the shop window.
There is a desire at the Allianz Stadium to swap Dybala for another high-profile name and ship out the newfound troublemaker as soon as possible.
The injury woes and a spotted history of disobeying the rules may make any attempted deal a difficult one, though.

Dybala has apologised after being caught up the party.
The police broke up the illegal celebrations, which were attended by around a dozen people, on Wednesday night at 11:30pm.
A strict coronavirus crackdown in Italy means that private parties have been banned. In addition, there is a nationwide curfew in place, running from 10pm until 5am.

McKennie’s neighbours complained to the authorities about the noise levels coming from the midfielder’s house.
Dybala and Arthur, another Juventus team-mate, were hit with fines for breaking lockdown rules due to having been present with their partners and other friends.
‘I know it would have been better to avoid, but I was wrong and I apologise, I shouldn’t have stayed out for dinner,’ Dybala insisted on Instagram.
