Footballers who ‘dated’ Playboy models from Cristiano Ronaldo to Neymar
Elite footballers enjoy a level of fame and fortune that allows them to rub shoulders with celebrities around the world away from their time on the pitch.
And many of these celebrities include famous models for publications including Playboy, who have been romantically linked with football stars in the past.
These include the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesse Lingard and Neymar who have been reported to have had friendships and relationships with current and former Playboy bunnies.
So here are five Playboy models that have been linked with footballers in the past, including the "sexy face of Italian football" and a Baywatch star.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Daniella Chavez
Chilean model Daniella Chavez once claimed that she had slept with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo never confirmed the relationship with Chavez and reports of the pair's relationship soon cooled.
Since claiming the two had enjoyed a night together, Chavez has gone on to become majority shareholder of her local football team, buying Rancagua Sur Sports Club in January 2021.
The side play in the fourth tier of Chilean football and are based in the central Chilean city of Rancagua.
Chavez also has a sizeable following on social media, which was boosted by the rumours of her fling with Ronaldo six years ago and currently has 14.5 million followers on Instagram.
Jesse Lingard – Laura Bragato
Juventus fan Lauara Bragato has enjoyed a friendship with Manchester United's Jesse Lingard since the pair met before the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
She was in contact with him while he was away on England duty at the tournament.
The duo have remained close since and were in contact during the first Covid lockdown during the spring of 2020.
Bragato has been dubbed the "sexy face of football" in her native Italy after becoming known for posting pictures online of her posing in Serie A jerseys.
She has previously shared photos of her wearing a Paulo Dybala Juventus shirt to her 350,000 Instagram followers and has also appeared in Playboy on numerous occasions.
Adil Rami – Pamela Anderson
Former Baywatch star and Playboy bunny Pamela Anderson dated French World Cup winner Adil Rami for two years between 2017 and 2019.
Rami reportedly proposed to the Canadian bombshell, who is 18 years his senior, in 2018 but Anderson turned him down before branding him a "monster" following their split.
She labelled their relationship a "big lie" as Rami went AWOL from training at Marseille following their public split.
Rami later reportedly went on to boast of their "12 times a night" sex sessions to his team mates, as revealed by Aleksandr Kokorin in June 2020 after the duo played together for Russian side Sochi.
Marouane Fellaini – Victoria Bonya
Russian actress and TV presenter Victoria Bonya was spotted enjoying dinner with then Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini in early 2018.
The pair's relationship was subject to intense media coverage in Bonya's native Russia but neither ever confirmed they were an item.
Bonya, who is based in France, has over 8 million followers on Instagram and claims she was once detained at LAX airport in Los Angeles after being accused of acting as a spy for Vladimir Putin.
Playboy cover star Bonya was not the first high-profile model linked to Fellaini, with his former exes rumoured to include adult TV star Roxanne Jeffers and Belgian model Gaelle Garcia Diaz.
