Roma have announced the signing of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer from Juventus.
The Argentine left the Bianconeri at the end of his contract in June, bringing the curtain down on a seven-year stay in Turin.
Dybala had been expected to join Inter and a deal to take him to San Siro was close, but we undertand the Nerazzurri’s inability to terminate Alexis Sanchez’s contract meant they could not complete the transaction.
That left the door open for Roma to sign the forward, who was also wanted by Serie A rivals Napoli.
