Mourinho, who has won league titles in England, Spain and Italy, will be on talkSPORT’s coverage of Euro 2020 this summer.
“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club and be a part of their vision,” he said.
“After meetings with the property and Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions for AS Roma. It is the same ambition and the same dynamism that have always motivated me and together we want to build a winning project in the years to come.
“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to take the job and I can’t wait to start next season.
“In the meantime, I wish Paulo Fonseca the best of luck and I hope the media will appreciate to speak only more in due time. Daje Roma! “
