After his contract with Juventus expired in June, the 28-year-old attacker signed a three-year contract with the club.

After moving to Turin from Palermo in 2015, Dybala scored 115 goals in 293 games and won five Serie A championships for the team.

Dybala remarked, “The days leading up to me signing this deal have been packed with so many emotions.

“What made the difference was the speed and tenacity with which Roma showed how much they wanted me.

“I am joining a team that is improving, a club that is laying strong foundations for the future, and a coach, Jose Mourinho, that it will be an honor to work with,” the player said.

Argentina’s Dybala has scored three goals in 34 international games.

In his 34 appearances for Argentina in international competition, Dybala has scored three goals, including one in a 3-0 victory against Italy in the 2022 Finalissima at Wembley in June, which is a rematch of the match between the champions of Europe and South America.

Giuseppe Marotta, the CEO of Inter Milan, stated that they were in negotiations to bring Dybala to the club in June.

During the 2019 summer transfer window, Manchester United and Tottenham were rumored to be interested in buying him, but Juventus decided against doing so.

Roma’s first season under Mourinho saw them finish sixth in Serie A, and he also led them to their first-ever European championship, the Europa Conference League triumph.

Fourth summer signing for Mourinho is Dybala, who joins midfielder Nemanja Matic, a former Manchester United player, and forward

Following the additions of defender Zeki Celik from Lille, goalkeeper Mile Svilar from Antwerp, and former Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic, Dybala becomes Mourinho’s fourth acquisition of the summer.

The number 21 jersey, originally selected by Matic when he joined last month, has been adopted by the Argentine. The number eight shirt is now being used by the Serbian international.

Roma used their social media campaign, which includes footage of missing children along with their transfer announcements, to promote the Dybala move on Wednesday.
