Lol.

Finally Moggi revealed that current Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was set to join the club before he moved to Old Trafford, but the deal fell through because Marcelo Salas rejected a transfer away.

"Cristiano Ronaldo was already ours. He came to Turin to for a medical. It was all set, but then [Marcelo] Salas wouldn’t leave,” he concluded.

Imagine. :D

PS: Salas was worse then Zalayeta in the year 2 years he played with us.

^The old man full of bs is Morrati.

I've heard about Salas-Ronaldo before, so I don't think Moggi is making up shit.

Well, that's tough Juve.

No chance he'd be the player he is now had he joined those arse bandits anyway.

We signed Nedved, Thuram and Buffon in 2001, these players turned out well didn't they? why would Ronaldo woudn't be the same anyway?

I know that they rejected him because he was what? 16 and unproven, surely he can't come for the expense of Salas by that time. (he became shit though past 2001, but was a proven player ..)

Obviously there's no guarantee he wouldn't be what he is now but I feel Juve would not treat him with the rubber gloves Sir Alex has been using on him since he came. He is a player that you need patience with and nurturing. It's all paying off now though as he's undoubtedly the most valuable player on the planet and scarily enough there's quite a lot to improve on. :scared: :hopeful:

Shit, shit and shit.
:D

The most nateable thing from that article that would make me sick as a Juve fan is that Moggi still refers to Juve as 'us' or 'ours'.

what's 2001 got to do with it all?

The summer Juve moved for him was in 2003 (I think).

They were all established players in their mid to late twenties. What young 17 year old's have Juventus nurtured into the best player in the world?

I think it's bullshit. I think we'd surely know if a medical was about to take place.

The Internet in 2001 is nothing like it is today where almost anything about your club is online.

And again, he was a 16 year old nobody. He was probably being signed for the Primavera. Even now people struggle to follow those types of transfers.

I didn't know the article gave a date. I thought before United meant, a few months. Ronaldo was 18 when he joined United so if anything he would have been 17. I'm assuming at least someone in the forum would have noted it at the time, so it is bullshit. Why would anyone believe Moggi?
