Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo may be able to do whatever the hell he wants, but he doesn’t always get to have his own way.
Reports in the Spanish media suggest that the 2016 Ballon d’Or winner’s success on the pitch last year wasn’t quite matched off it when he was rejected by a Russian model Lilia Ermak.
Ms Ermak is a popular figure on social media, demonstrated by having over a million followers on Instagram.
Despite residing in Miami, USA, the model is understood to have been approached by Ronaldo on social media at some point last year and to the surprise of many, rejected the Madrid superstar’s advances.
Not one to waste his time, Ronaldo has since hooked up with Georgina Rodriguez who has been spotted at Bernabeu on numerous occasions over the last few months which suggests that things are going rather well between the couple.
Any plans for Valentine’s day could well be on hold for Ronaldo though as he prepares for Real Madrid’s Champions League last 16 first-leg clash with Napoli on Wednesday evening, as Los Blancos seek to become the first team to retain the trophy.
