Former Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi has joined Argentine side Boca Juniors.

The Italian World Cup winner, 36, left the Serie A giants at the end of last season, having spent his whole professional career with them.

He scored 63 goals in 616 appearances – only Francesco Totti, with 768, has played more games for Roma.

De Rossi rejected the chance to move into a director’s role saying that he “still feels like a player” and wanted to pursue “a new adventure” elsewhere.

He played 117 matches for Italy, winning the World Cup in 2006.
