The Internet is ablaze with rumors that Cristiano Ronaldo is fishing in the company pond.
Real Madrid Television presenter Lucia Villalon took a photo with Ronaldo last week and uploaded it to her Instagram account. When supermodel Irina Shayk confirmed her breakup with Ronaldo last Friday, many jumped to the conclusion that the 29-year-old Portuguese superstar and Villalon already have started dating, according to the Mail.
Villalon, 26, was part of the delegation Real Madrid sent to FIFA’s 2014 Ballon d’Or Gala on Jan. 12, from which Shayk was conspicuously absent. Ronaldo won his third Ballon d’Or, and Villalon celebrated the occasion with a now-famous photo.

Villalon and friends then attended Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Getafe on Sunday. She shared a photo, which further fueled rumors of a relationship between her and Ronaldo.
