Spanish model insists she’s still dating Manchester United star

Cristiano Ronaldo is prepared to give his relationship with Nereida Gallardo another go after she made an emotional phone call to the soccer star.

Portuguese newspapers reported the couple broke up last week because his mum Dolores didn’t approve of the Spanish model.

But insiders say Cris, 23, and Nereida, 25, are now working things out after she pleaded with him to take her back.

‘She’s head-over-heels in love with Cristiano and will do anything to keep him,’ a source tells the Daily Star. ‘Things haven’t been rosy but they are going to give it another try.

‘She called him and begged him not to go. She would be distraught if it ended, but hopefully now it won’t come to that.’

Earlier this week, Nereida told journalists outside her parents’ luxury home in Majorca that she was still with the Manchester United star.

‘We are still very much in love. We’ve spoken and everything is fine,’ she said. ‘We are still very much together.’
