Paulo Dybala scored the opening goal in the Serie A win over Udinese
Paulo Dybala appeared to send a message to the Juventus hierarchy after scoring the opener in a 2-0 win over Udinese.
Rather than celebrate the goal, Dybala glared in the direction of the club's directors amid uncertainty over his future.
The Argentina striker is yet to agree an extension to his contract, which expires at the end of the season, despite long-running negotiations.
Weston McKennie headed a second to move Juve level on points with fourth place Atalanta, who have two games in hand.
Recent reports in the Italian media have suggested that Dybala, 28, is unhappy with the club's stance in talks.
Juventus are now unbeaten in their past eight games in Serie A.
