It’s the third time Giallorossi boss Jose Mourinho has signed the midfielder after bringing him back to Chelsea in 2014 and then to the Red Devils three years later.

Roma chief executive Tiago Pinto said: “Nemanja brings with him to Roma not only a lot of quality on the pitch, but the vast experience he has gained over so many seasons in the Premier League and a concentration and a mentality that have always distinguished him throughout his career.

“The enthusiasm he showed about joining our project was extremely encouraging and I’m sure it will set the starting point for a very productive journey for all of us.”

England star Lucy Bronze is keen for the Lionesses to exploit the advantage of playing in front of home fans at Women’s Euro 2022 next month.

The men’s side played six of their seven games at Wembley at last summer’s Euro 2020 as they came close to lifting the trophy – losing to Italy on penalties in the final.

Now it’s the women’s side’s turn to play host as they prepare for group matches in front of packed crowds at Old Trafford, the Amex and St Mary’s in hopes of reaching finally the centerpiece of Wembley on July 31.

Experienced full-back Bronze, 30, said: “We try to see that as a lot of support. He’s our 12th man, hopefully.

“I think the best and biggest players want to play in these games with a full crowd.

“We saw how much of a difference it made for the men’s team last year and we actually spoke to a lot of them over the last week about their experiences and the difference it made. , sort of being that country of origin.”

The women’s and men’s teams have been training at St George’s Park for the past few weeks as they prepare for their respective Euro 2022 and Nations League fixtures.

Bronze added: “They reached the final so I think that’s something we want to replicate and use to our advantage.

“Declan [Rice] and Kieran [Trippier] came to talk to us as a group and talk about their experiences but, equally, we’ve been in and around St George’s Park with them for the past couple of weeks so we’ve talked to a lot of them.

“It’s a good atmosphere because I feel like both teams have gelled really well, which hasn’t really happened in the past. They’re just our peers and they see us from the same way.”

Jonjoe Kenny has joined Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on a three-year deal after leaving Everton.

The 25-year-old right-back opted to leave the Toffees when his contract expired after rejecting an offer to extend his stay at Goodison Park.

Kenny enjoyed a successful loan spell with Schalke in 2019-20 before spending the first half of last season at Celtic.

After sealing his return to Germany, Kenny said: “The club has made it clear how much they want me. I’m happy to be here. I can’t wait to play for this club, see the fans and move to this town.”
