Footie hunk will ask girlfriend’s step-dad for her hand in marriage

Cristiano Ronaldo plans to pop the question to Spanish girlfriend Nereida Gallardo, according to an insider.

The footie hunk is keen to settle down with his Majorca-based model because he’s finding it hard to maintain their long-distance relationship.

Cristiano, 23, plans to ask her step-dad for her hand in marriage.

Nereida, 24, is expected to move into his £4million mansion in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, now the football season has ended.

‘He needs stability and has always relied on the strong back-bone of his family and relatives,’ a source tells the Daily Star.

‘He looks at so many of his teammates who head off to their loved ones, and that’s what he now wants.

‘He is really missing that special someone. With Nereida moving over here to be with him, it’s going to make the pair of them so much happier.’
