It is 19 July and inevitably we have to throw the sight backwards to remember one of the key dates in the history of the FC Barcelona. Possibly a day that changed it everything. The day that the Barcelona club resurgió of his ashes and restarted the illusion by the football. It forgot the depression and infected of one of the most beautiful smiles of the football.

Such day as today of 2003, the Barcelona did official the signing of Ronaldinho. The crack Brazilian, that then was a member of Paris Saint Germain, decided by the Catalan club after sopesar the multiple offers of other big clubs like the Manchester United or the Real Madrid.

With this signing, the president of the Catalan team then, Joan Laporta, achieved to a star to be able to face up to the big signings of his big rival, Florentino Pérez, especially after the attempt fallido to sign to David Beckham.

The Brazilian star, that was key in the World-wide of Korea and Japan 2002 with the selection of Brazil, was traspasado in return of 27 million euros to the PSG and signed by five seasons with the entity blaugrana. The history, of leftovers known: 94 goals and 61 assistances in 207 parties, raising six titles with the Champions of Paris like colophon. 

An eternal smile

During some years the Camp Nou could enjoy of an unpublished magic. Of one strike of the balloon sensacional. A sublime intelligence. A physicist portentoso. It is difficult to remain with an alone action of Ronaldinho. Because each his party was a delight for the lovers of the football. An illusionist like few there has been in the history of the football.

Ronaldinho Was the idol of a generation, and if his head had wanted, perhaps still would have him carrying the baton of the Barça, with another role, but in the Barcelona team. Although probably his exit was necessary so that we saw the explosion of Messi. And now we can enjoy with Neymar, his homologous.
