According to the Corriere della Sera, Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba tested positive for testosterone during his team’s Serie A match against Udinese.
According to the article, Pogba has three days to reply to the accusation.
In the majority of the top European leagues, anti-doping tests are routinely administered to players just after games.
Pogba featured against Bologna and Empoli before his test was allegedly confirmed to maintain traces of testosterone.
The former Manchester United midfielder must now produce a counter-analysis of the result.
If Pogba is found guilty, bans for doping in Serie A can carry suspensions from playing lasting between two and four years, leaving the 30-year-old in significant trouble.
