Roma on Wednesday announced the signing of Paulo Dybala on a three-year contract after the Argentine forward’s deal with Juventus expired. Dybala said in a statement: “I come to a team that is growing, with a club that continues to lay a strong foundation for the future and a coach, Jose Mourinho, with whom I am privileged to work with ” The 28-year-old was touted for a transfer to Serie A runners-up Inter Milan, which would have ensured Champions League football next season.
Roma finished sixth in Serie A last season.
Sky reported that the contract was worth six million euros ($6.08 million) per season including bonuses.
Dybala spent seven years trophy-laden in Turin, scoring 115 goals for Juve, but has struggled with injuries over the past two seasons.
He joined Juve from Palermo in 2015, winning five Serie A titles and four Italian Cups.
He also played in the team that reached the final of the 2017 Champions League but lost to Real Madrid.
