The Argentinean player has already apologised to Juve coach Allegri for leaving the stadium in Turin early during last weekend's home game against Parma.

Paulo Dybala left the Allianz Stadium last Saturday ahead of the final whistle as his Juventus side dropped points in a dramatic 3-3 draw against Parma.

Alarm bells are ringing in Turin over a possible rift between the player and first team coach Massimiliano Allegri and aware of the situation, Dybala did his best to quell any nerves stating on Friday that he had apologised to the Livorno born coach but speculation is ongoing about the Argentine's current situation with the Turin based outfit. Allegri later said there was "no rift" but was said to be furious.

Turin's local sports daily Tuttosport claim today that the player is at the biggest crossroads of his career and despite having a deal with Juve that runs through to 2022, the 25-year-old may consider an exit from the Serie A club as an option with Real Madrid being the likely destination for the Argentine.

Former Juve hero and current director Pavel Nevded was quick to show support for the player stating: “In Paulo, we have a superhero here and want him to stay. He's playing better and we're very happy with him".

Dybala's alternative is to maintain his competitive edge and win Allegri over and potentially aspire to emulate the likes of Alessandro Del Piero who is regarded as one of the most iconic Juve players in recent times. Juve are also anxious that the attacking player goes on to become bianconeri captain and key figure in the team when the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and current captain Chiellini retire.
