Boca Juniors have completed the signing of former Roma and Italy midfielder Daniele de Rossi on a free transfer.

The 36-year-old received a hero's reception by hordes of Boca fans who gathered for his arrival at the Ezeiza international airport in Buenos Aires on Thursday.

Boca confirmed the news by posting pictures on social media of De Rossi's arrival at their iconic La Bombonera stadium for his first training session.

De Rossi was released by Roma in May after making his 616th and final appearance for the club in a 2-1 home win over Parma. He later said that he still "feels like a player" and wanted a "new adventure."

He has capped 117 times for Italy and was a part of the Azzurri team that won the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
