Joan Maria Batlle, of the newspaper "Sport", has explained by means of an article published this Wednesday in the newspaper "Sport" cuán different -and unknown- could have been the recent history of the FC Barcelona in the case that Joan Laporta and Sandro Rosell, in his arrival to the presidency in summer of 2003, had bet by fichar to the then young promise of the Sporting of Lisbon, Cristiano Ronaldo, instead of to the big star of Paris Saint-Germain, Ronaldinho, that finish turning into the hero that did resurgir of the ashes to the Barcelona group.

And it is that, as it explains the quoted journalist, the Barça handled in summer of 2003 several reports that gave the seen well to the incorporation of Cristiano Ronaldo when this had so only 18 years. The prodigious evolution of Leo Messi in the inferior categories of the Barcelona club already was remaining patent with his first announcements with the first team, although the Argentinian would not debut with the FC Barcelona until a time later. The case is that in 2003, when Laporta arrived to the presidency of the Barça with the name of Beckham like catchword, produced a played to three bands that fortunately finish repercutiendo in that the Barça was the most benefited.

The Real Madrid advanced to the FC Barcelona by the signing of Beckham and the Manchester United, like reaction to cover the remarkable drop of the English star, decided to incorporate quickly to Cristiano Ronaldo to his staff, taking advantage of of this form the indecision of a Barça that finally, thank you mainly to the insistence of Sandro Rosell, finish deciding by the signing of a footballer that also was called to be a "crack" and that stood out from did months in the then modest PSG, Ronaldinho Gaúcho.

The Barça, besides, had already to Ricardo Quaresma in the staff like extreme theoretically of present and future, and this influenced also in that it did not finish bidding with the Manchester United by the signing of a Christian Ronaldo that was controlled from did time to base of reports on his evolutions. One desconoce, but can do an idea, of what could have happened when jointing to Cristiano and to a jovencísimo Messi in the staff of the first team of the Barcelona.

It can that the egocentrism of the Portuguese and his will to be always the protagonist had affected to the progression of the current better player of the world, that had a "much calmer" habitat in the first team thanks to Ronaldinho, Deco and Eto'or, among others players, those who helped him to adapt when being perfect sabedor that they were in front of an aspiring youngster to turn into one of the best of the history. And like this it has been.
