With that being said, here is the latest Juventus news for April 6, 2021:

According to Football Italia, the meeting over the Easter weekend was not for business, but the situation between the two parties is being constantly monitored.

The report also states that Juventus' clash with Napoli on Wednesday will be decisive for Andrea Pirlo's future at the club moving forward.

Juventus have reportedly withdrawn from negotiations over Paulo Dybala's contract renewal. The Bianconeri are ready to part ways with the forward in the summer.

According to Football Italia, the club have lost patience with Paulo Dybala's indecisiveness and do not want to progress with talks.

Juventus reportedly offered that Argentine a contract worth €10 million-a-year, but the forward was holding out for €15 million.

GIven his injury record, the Bianconeri do not believe that Dybala is worth so much money, and are now looking to sell him at the end of the season.

Juventus will reportedly have to pay €15 million if they are to sign Genoa striker Eldor Shomurodov in the summer.

According to Calciomercato, the transfer value of the Uzbek has doubled this season and the Bianconeri will have to shell out €15 million if they want to sign him in the summer.

With Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala's futures at the club in doubt, Shomurodov is seen as a cheaper alternative to back up Cristiano Ronaldo next season.

Juventus are also interested in Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette and Marseille's Arkadiusz Milik, but the duo would cost significantly more than the Genoa hitman.
