It also made Mourinho the second manager to win five major European titles after Giovanni Trapattoni. Roma finished sixth in Serie A last term.
Dybala will look to bring his Juve success with him to Roma. He won five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia trophies in Turin after he joined from Palermo in 2015.
