Paulo Dybala has been announced as a free transfer by Roma, having left Juventus at the end of seven years in Turin when his Bianconeri contract expired in June. According to recent reports, Paulo Dybala is joining AS Roma on a three-year contract, having left Juventus this summer at the expiration of his agreement. One of their own, leaving Juventus on free agency this summer, has decided, to the shock of all, to join Jose Mourinho’s Roma. One of the summer’s transfers sagas finally concluded Monday when Argentine free agent Paulo Dybala agreed to join Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma on a three-year contract which would keep him in Italy’s capital until the summer of 2025.

While former Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is joining in a free transfer, his arrival at Roma is only the latest indication of intent from club owners to provide Jose Mourinho with all the tools needed to compete in Italy’s top silverware. Paulo Dybala has signed a three-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma that will see him remain in the capital until 2025. If reports are to prove correct, Argentina striker Paulo Dybala will be Jose Mourinho’s fourth signing for AS Roma, following midfielder Nemanja Matic, goalkeeper Myles Svilar and defender Zeki Celik.

Paulo Dybala’s seven-year spell at Juventus between 2015-2022 has been anything but successful. The Argentina striker has won five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia titles, scoring 115 goals in 293 games across all competitions. La Repubblica reported that Jose Mourinho’s Roma had outbid other parties for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala’s signing by Inter Milan, their Serie A rivals.

If all goes as planned, the Argentina international will continue his decades-long stay in the Italian league for one more year. Either way, one of their own will be an essential piece of business for Jose Mourinho’s Roma next season, with his qualities and pedigree showing that he can impact every match at the highest level. Suppose Roma coach Jose Mourinho sticks with his current tactics. In that case, one of their own can fill a role similar to that of Lampard during his Chelsea days, coming on late into the box, but his versatility would help him to fit into any attacking positions that Mourinho sets up his side with.

Roma fans will be hoping that Dybala can lead Mourinho’s team to the next level in 2022-23, with the Portuguese coach wanting to get the team back into the Champions League after winning the Europa Conference League last season. He is expected to earn roughly €6 million per year (£5.1 million/$6 million).
