The ex-Juventus star signed a three-year contract with the club, earning him €6 million net per year plus add-ons. The club received €24M in jersey sales in one day, effectively earning back what they paid for the player.
Rome welcomes La Joya
Roma fans are raving about their new signing, even making a mural of him in the center of Rome. That must also be a new record, along with the fact that “San Paulo la Joya” also got a gelato flavor after him.
The 28-year-old is eager to take Roma to the next level.
“The days that have led up to me signing this contract have been filled with so many emotions,” Dybala said upon the official announcement.
“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.”
“But I think that shirt must still belong to Totti for everything he did. I thanked him but to wear a shirt like this you need to have a lot of respect and responsibility. Maybe one day I will deserve to wear it.”
