Paulo Dybala has completed his sensational switch to Roma, putting pen to paper on a three-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s side.

The Italian capital-based club were in a three-way tussle with Napoli and Inter Milan to secure the 28-year-old’s services after he left Juventus as a free agent at the end of last month.

Dybala flew to Portugal earlier this week – w. Roma are currently on pre-season – to complete his medical before joining up with Mourinho and his new team-mates.

Fabrizio Romano revealed that the Portuguese manager personally spoke with Dybala on the phone a week ago to convince him to join.

It appears that conversation was crucial to Dybala as Mourinho explained Roma’s project to him.

It seemed Dybala was set for a move to last season’s Serie A runners-up Inter Milan.

However, that move was later scuppered due to the requests from Dybala’s agent and their need to sell either Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa after Romelu Lukaku’s arrival.

The delay opened the door for Roma, with Mourinho pushing hard to seal the move for the five-time Serie A winner.

It continues the Italian side’s push to complete their business early in the transfer window, with Zeki Celik, Nemanja Matic and Mile Svilar having already come through the door.

Dybala scored 115 goals for Juventus in 293 appearances across all competitions during his seven-year stint at the Allianz Stadium.
