Does football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo have a new new girlfriend? A new woman has surfaced and revealed that she formed an “instant bond” with the Portugal captain. What sets her apart from the other women that have been linked to Ronaldo is her uncanny resemblance to his ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk.
Serbian-born model Kristina Peric has revealed that she met Cristiano Ronaldo during the time that he was having relationship issues with Shayk. The former couple ended their five-year relationship back in January 2015.
Peric, 20, shared with The Sun that a makeup artist told her that she and Irina were almost identical and that he thinks Ronaldo will like her. The makeup artist later made the introduction and the pair hit it off.
However, Peric has not confirmed whether or not she had anything to do with Ronaldo’s breakup with Irina. There was also no mention about Peric meeting up with Ronaldo since the initial introduction. “Unfortunately we didn’t have the chance to spend more time together, because he was in a hurry, and I had to leave for some work in Miami,” she reportedly said.
Infidelity was reported to be at the center of Ronaldo’s breakup with Irina. US Weekly reports that the Russian model is now dating Hollywood star Bradley Cooper. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked to several other women since the split.
While his lovelife is up in the air, Ronaldo has been giving solid performances on the pitch. Last season, he led Portugal to the UEFA Euro 2016 Championship. He also helped Real Madrid win their 11th UEFA Champions League title.
Ronaldo is also the favorite to bring home this year’s Ballon d’Or or the FIFA Best Player of the Year award. Apart from football, he has been keeping himself busy with business ventures just like the newly-launched Pestana CR7 Hotel chain.
