The Portugal international has signed a three-year contract with the Serie A club, the club confirmed.
The 33-year-old becomes new Portuguese coach Mourinho's first signing in a deal that runs until June 2024 and is worth an initial 11.5 million euros ($13.5 million) plus bonuses, the club said.
"In Jose Mourinho we are talking about one of the greatest coaches in the world and I am excited to start working with him and doing everything I can to help the team," said Patricio.
