Ricardo Andrade Quaresma Bernardo (born 26 September 1983, in Lisbon, Portugal) is a Portuguese footballer of Romani descent, who currently plays as a winger for Turkish Super League side Beşiktaş and the Portuguese national team. Quaresma began his career at Sporting CP, and has also played for Barcelona, Porto, Inter Milan and Chelsea.
While a trainee at Sporting's famed academy, Quaresma made his professional debut during the 2000–01 season playing 15 games for the B Team. In the next season, he was promoted to the senior squad by then club manager László Bölöni, playing 28 matches and scoring three goals and was a key player in Sporting's league and cup double triumph.
2002–03 was a poor season for Sporting, finishing third in the league, which prompted speculation about Quaresma's future at the club.
Quaresma was then sold to Barcelona for a reported €6M and loan of Fábio Rochemback. His stint with the Catalan side could be best described as unlucky. In his debut season, he made 10 starts and 11 substitute appearances, scoring only one goal. In the final weeks of the season, he injured his right foot badly, forcing him to miss the 2004 UEFA Under-21 Championship.
