It is very safe to say that not since the arrival of Ronaldinho has a player come with so much weight.
As many of you know, then-president Joan Laporta was running on the “bring Beckham” platform, even as that deal never had a chance of happening. Ronaldinho was the one, and boy, did that work out. And now we have another Brazilian, who is describing a very different path from Ronaldinho, one fraught with complexity.
The question now is, what does that path mean, and what does it mean for the club?
