Paulo Dybala has completed his move to AS Roma on a free transfer from Juventus.

The 28-year-old frontman has signed a contract with the Serie A outfit until June 2025. He heads to the Stadio Olimpico as a free agent after  ending a seven-year spell at Juventus last month.

Reports had linked Dybala with fellow Serie A sides Napoli and Inter Milan earlier this summer, but Roma got the nod. The  Giallorossi’s new No. 21 arrived in Portugal to link up with Jose Mourinho’s side on Monday. He underwent a medical, and upon passing the tests, completed his transfer.

Dybala’s first words as a Roma player

“The days that have led up to me signing this contract have been filled with so many emotions,” Dybala told the club’s website.

“The speed and determination with which Roma demonstrated just how much they wanted me made all the difference.

“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.”

Dybala is Roma’s fourth signing of the summer after goalkeeper Mile Svilar, midfielder Nemanja Matic, and right-back Zeki Celik.
