The Argentine international became the third Bianconeri player to test positive for Covid-19 last weekend, after teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi. Both Dybala and his girlfriend, Oriana Sabatini, tested positive and continued isolating at their home in Turin.
Serie A was the first European league hit by Covid-19, with matches first being played behind closed doors before the season was put on pause.
"I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better," he told Juventus' official YouTube account.

“I didn’t think twice about accepting, the first thing I did was hug my mum," he added.
He concluded, “I remember it as if it were yesterday: I was at my house in Palermo, there were many teams interest in me, but I was waiting, I didn’t close the door to anyone. One day after lunch, the phone rang, and it was my agent, announcing that Juventus would call us."
