AS Roma have reportedly sold 535,000 Paulo Dybala shirts just a day after he signed for the club. This breaks the record of Cristiano Ronaldo who held the record for most sales when he arrived at Juventus.

The playmaker arrived at the club on a free transfer from Juventus. AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly played a very big part in convincing him to join the club.

PAULO DYBALA TRANSFER SAGA FULL STORY

Dybal was a free agent after leaving Juventus on a free transfer this summer. However, many teams immediately made a move for him. Inter had an agreement with the player. However, the loan deal of Romelu Lukaku made the deal impossible. Inter thought they had enough forwards to sustain this summer. Manchester United and Tottenham also rejected the chance to sign him.

There were also reports of him regretting leaving Juventus after so many years. However, AS Roma made him a contract offer. Although the offer was financially a lower proposal than his demands, Jose Mourinho managed to convince Paulo Dybala to sign for AS Roma.

THE DEAL IS LOOKING GREAT FOR ALL THE PARTIES CONCERNED

Everybody thought the deal was very risky when it was made. However, it looks like many opinions are going to change. The deal is now looking like a great deal for all the parties concerned. AS Roma owners are already profiting from the shirt sales. Jose Mourinho is already impressed by him on the training ground. The most important thing is Dybala is going to get regular game time.
