Pretty brunette Lucia Villalon, who was in Zurich, started tongues wagging after posting a selfie on Twitter of her and Ronaldo holding his Ballon d’Or on the plane to Madrid.
State broadcaster RTE named law and journalism graduate Lucia as Cristiano’s possible new girlfriend on a morning show today. Several Spanish newspapers including heavyweight ABC echoed the rumours later on.
A Real Madrid TV spokesman said: “We speak about sport and not romances on this channel.”
Ronaldo and his ex girlfriend Irina confirmed their breakup in a statement few days ago.
