The Portuguese José Mourinho already has the pearl. A new star who could not succeed at Juventus and who arrives in Rome to revive old times.

The Argentine, who was presented this Tuesday as a new Italian Roma player, endorsed the words of the coach of Atlético de Madrid, his compatriot Diego "Cholo" Simeone, and assured, in his first press conference as a Roma player, that he has arrived at the club Italian to go "match by match".
"It's early to talk about the Scudetto. Right now there are teams ahead of us, we have to work calmly. Roma have won a very important trophy, there are still important goals and the desire is great. We all like to win. We have to go game by game and later we will see where we are", said the 27-year-old Argentine international who has signed for three seasons.

Referring to his departure from Juventus, the team with which he was proclaimed champion of the top flight of the Italian League five times, Dybala said that "it was not an economic problem."
