Paulo Dybala agrees to join Roma

Former Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is set to join Roma on a free transfer. 

The Argentine international’s contract with the Turin giants expired earlier this summer and he has agreed to join the capital club on a three-year deal. 

Dybala has been outstanding in the Italian Serie A for years now and he should prove to be a quality addition for Roma. 

According to reports via GFFN, the player has been promised the number ten shirt by club legend Francesco Totti. The former Italian international is widely regarded as one of the best players to have played for the club and it remains to be seen whether Dybala can handle the pressure of the iconic shirt. 

The report adds that the player personally spoke to Jose Mourinho before committing to a move to Roma. Apparently, the Portuguese manager played a key role in selling the project to the player. 

Roma won a European Cup under his management last year and they will be hoping to challenge for the Scudetto next year. Mourinho needs to improve his squad in order to challenge the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus. Dybala should improve them considerably in the final third. 

The Italian outfit signed a quality striker in Tammy Abraham last season and Dybala is expected to partner the former Chelsea player in the attack. 

The Argentine is a creative forward who thrives alongside a reliable goalscorer. He will add technical ability, flair and creativity along with goals to the side. 

Dybala was linked with a move to the Premier League as well but he has chosen to continue his adventure in Italy instead.
