Paulo Dybala is rumored to have broken the record for the most shirts sold in Italy in a single day after signing with Roma.

Paulo Dybala surpasses Cristiano Ronaldo's record for the most shirts sold in Italy in a single day

The three-year contract between the Argentina international and Jose Mourinho’s team was signed earlier this week.

Corriere dello Sport claimed that the deal was extremely well received in the Italian city and that Dybala is already much-liked.

The 28-year-old actually surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo’s previous mark for the number of jerseys sold in a single day.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018, and his reputation as one of the best players in the world attracted a lot of media attention.

Although it is “absolute folly” to get a shirt with Dybala’s name and number on the back, it is ineffective against him.

Although Dybala has won the Serie A five times, he has had recent injury problems.

Last season, despite making 29 league games, he only managed to score 10 goals.

There is no questioning his talent, and Roma even offered to let him play with the famous number 10 that Francesco Totti wore for five years at the Allianz Stadium.

Out of respect for the Giallorossi legend, Dybala declined the Legendary No. 10 Jersey formerly worn by the Italy international.

“I spoke to the general manager and he asked if I wanted to take number 10, which of course is so significant here because of everything Francesco Totti did,” he said in his first interview as a Roma player.

“I think that shirt and that number should remain his because of what he means to the city and the fans. I thanked him because wearing a shirt like that requires a lot of respect and responsibility.

“I still see it as his shirt. Maybe I’ll wear it one day but for now I’m happy to have number 21, which is the number I wore when I first started to be successful.

Paulo Exequiel Dybala, an Argentine professional footballer who plays forward for both the Argentina national team and Serie A club Roma, was born on November 15, 1993.

Nicknamed “La Joya” (“The Jewel”), Dybala started his senior club career in 2011 with Instituto de Córdoba. In 2012, at the age of 18, he signed with Palermo, where he won a Serie B championship. Dybala joined Juventus in 2015 and went on to win four Italian Cups and five league championships.

He is Juventus’ ninth-highest goalscorer all-time. He was also chosen as the Serie A Most Valuable Player once and was a member of the Serie A Team of the Year four times.

At the age of 21, Dybala made his senior international debut for Argentina. Since then, he has gained over 30 caps, and he has represented his country at both the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2019 Copa América. He scored the game-winning goal in the latter to enable his country take third place.

Personal Life

In order to expedite his move to Palermo and avoid FIGC rules that only allow a maximum of two non-EU players in any Serie A squad, Dybala gained Italian citizenship on August 13, 2012.

Dybala initially tried to become a Polish citizen by virtue of genealogy from his grandpa, but the paperwork proved to be too difficult.

On his physique, Dybala has various tattoos, including two stripes on his left arm, an Arabic design, and a football with a crown on it.
