Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly dating a former Miss Spain who made the top ten in the subsequent Miss Universe beauty contest.
Spanish glamour mag Corazon says the footballer and stunning model Desire Cordero, 23, have been an item for around a month.
They are said to have hooked up after giving each other likes on social media photos before starting to swap private messages.
Desire has reportedly moved in to a new place in the Spanish capital with two female friends and has been spotted several times at the gated VIP estate of La Finca on the outskirts of Madrid where Cristiano lives.
The model, who previously dated Spanish footballer Enzo Renella, has written a series of cryptic messages on her Instagram which fans have interpreted as clues she has a famous new love.
One said: “Good things take time but really great things happen in a blink of an eye” to which a follower replied: “CR7.”
She also sparked speculation among fans she was dating Cristiano by posting pictures from Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium where she watched a match with pals.
Seville-born Desire was voted Miss Spain in 2014 and went on to represent her country at the Miss Universe contest in the States where she finished sixth.
She has worked as model since she was 16.
Cristiano, whose last serious girlfriend was Russian beauty Irina Shayk, has been linked to a string of glamorous women since their January 2015 split.
He was pictured gyrating on a luxury yacht in the Med in June with a brunette who was later identified as Colombian Paula Suarez.
British socialite Chloe Green set tongues wagging in March by posting an autographed message from Cristiano above a lips T-shirt on her Instagram during a visit to Madrid.
