The Serie A outfit were fuming at the South American after he went to meet up with his national team against the advice of club doctors.
The 24-year-old was subsequently left out of the Udinese side which beat Reggina 1-0 on Sunday, despite the player's claims he was fit to participate.
Now, the club's general manager Pierpaolo Marino has come forward to admit that Udinese could consider selling the player who has been linked with Internazionale, Juventus, Lazio and Liverpool in the past.
"I want to make clear that the measure the club took against Pizarro is a disciplinary one, because, despite the contrary decision of our doctors, he went to South America to play with the Chilean national team," stated Marino.
"He then came back in bad condition.
"Pizarro is a player like all the others, and he suffers disciplinary measures like everyone.
"Pizarro up for sale? Everyone knows we are a club that has a plan to spot young players and allows them to progress.
"It's clear that then if Muntari, who has replaced him, does well, then anything could happen."
