However, injuries and a contract dispute left the door open for Juve’s rivals to pounce. Knowing the class of the player, Jose Mourinho secured the deal and expects Dybala to make a huge impact in his squad.

As per Roma, the four-time Coppa Italia champion said: “The days that have led up to me signing this contract have been filled with so many emotions. The speed and determination with which Roma demonstrated just how much they wanted me made all the difference.”

He continued: “I am joining a team that is on the up, a club that continues to put in place strong foundations for the future, and a coach, Jose Mourinho, that it will be a privilege to work with. As an opponent I have always admired the atmosphere created by the Roma fans. I now cannot wait for the chance to salute them while wearing this shirt.”

The five-time Serie A champion was named the league’s MVP in 2020. In addition, he featured in their Team of the Season on four occasions. Therefore, it only makes sense that Roma supporters are so excited to see what he can do in the coming years.
