Paulo Dybala’s injury record is beginning to cause consternation within Juventus circles, as this is already his fourth setback in just five months.

The Argentina international limped off during yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Venezia, just 12 minutes into the Serie A game, with yet another muscular issue in his right thigh.

More tests are required to figure out the extent of the damage this time, but the fact remains Dybala has been consistently struggling with muscular problems this season.

It started over the summer, with a left thigh concern keeping him out from July 21 to August 10.

His left thigh was injured again during the game against Sampdoria on September 26, keeping him out of big matches against Chelsea, Torino, Zenit and Roma.

Nonetheless, Dybala went to play for Argentina on international duty and sustained another calf injury in his left leg in November.

It was the right thigh that caused issues this time, limping off at half-time during the Champions League win over Malmo midweek and aggravating it just 12 minutes into the Venezia match yesterday.

As the team captain and Number 10, the player Juventus are meant to build their future around, his physical weakness is raising serious concerns.

Dybala’s current contract is due to expire at the end of this season and a new deal had been agreed worth over €10m per season in wages, but that has been put in doubt after these setbacks.
