Pussycat doll is dating Ronaldo

THIS is the stunning model seeing Футбол звезда CRISTIANO RONALDO . . . a Ukrainian beauty who’s big ambition is to open a cattery for strays.

ALYONA HAYNES, 25 — who is separated from her wealthy husband — met Man U’s Ronaldo at a posh restaurant.

The smitten 23-year-old footballer has been bombarding her with text messages ever since, and they have shared at least eight dates.

A close pal said: “It’s early days but Ronaldo seems very keen on her and has wined and dined her at some very expensive restaurants.

“Ronaldo texts her mobile день and night. She’s very sexy and intelligent and finds him charming and funny.

“During one evening out together she made him laugh after telling him her dream is to open up a cattery. She adores animals, especially cats.”

Alyona works in the fashion department at Selfridges in Manchester. But she is also the face of a dating website which finds beautiful Russian Влюбленные for British men.

She moved out of husband John Haynes’ million-pound penthouse in Altrincham, Cheshire, some time назад and is living with a friend.

The cleaning firm director has accused Ronaldo of breaking up his marriage — but Друзья of Alyona say she had already broken up with John when she met the winger in August.

Angry John, 50, vowed to divorce Alyona — and сказал(-а) he had found 49 text messages from the звезда on her mobile.

He said: “I saw messages coming in from him with his number saved as Ronaldo.

“They looked like they had been written by a seven-year-old . . . it was dreadful English and they mentioned Portugal. They were very coyly written.

“There were things like ‘Do Ты miss me baby? I miss you’. I just assumed she was playing around with a waiter who had just arrived from Portugal. I had no idea it was him.

“He’s not intelligent in the slightest. Alyona is a very intelligent woman so I can’t imagine what they talk about when they sit down together. I just can’t get my head around it.”

Alyona’s pal added: “It’s not a full-blown Любовь affair yet but it certainly seems to be moving in that direction and they plan to meet up again.

“She’s furious with John for accusing Ronaldo of breaking up their marriage because it was already on the rocks when they met.”

Ronaldo’s Назад girlfriends include Spanish model NEREIDA GALLARDO, Hollyoaks actress GEMMA ATKINSON and Italian model LETIZIA FILIPPI.
