Top 5 Portuguese Footballers Who Met Girls Online

Professional footballers are the envy of so many of their fans, often getting paid a small fortune for 90 minutes of kicking a ball around a few times a month. On top of that, their high profile puts them in the public eye – and as elite athletes in peak fitness, if they’re single, they receive a lot of attention from females. Take the example of Portugal, consistently in UEFA’s top 10 world footballing nations. Portuguese players must be in high demand, perhaps connecting via dating sites? 

Many dating sites, including , have helped make it easier and easier to wander the treacherous lands in search of potential romantic interests.

Let’s consider five players rumored to have used this platform.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Less a top footballer and more of an icon of the sport, Ronaldo is widely considered one of the greatest all-time footballers. As well as winning 32 trophies, including league championships and five Championship leagues at the club level, he holds the record for most appearances for a European national side. What else? He has won four prestigious Golden shoes and was the first footballer to earn over $1 billion during his career. A father of four, he has been linked with stunning girlfriends wherever he has played (Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus). Although his current girlfriend is a Spanish model, Georgina Rodríguez, there are whispers that he has used hook up sites in the past. He does have a massive online presence (with over 300 million Instagram followers) – hookup dating sites are just a couple of clicks away on any home screen!

Vítor Baía

Veteran goalkeeper Baía has notched up almost 450 appearances for Porto and Barcelona and 50 for his country. Married to Alexandra Rodrigues de Almeida, they co-founded a charity for underprivileged kids. His status is now single, and he likes to keep his personal life as private as possible. Those sound like the perfect factors for registering with a dating site!

Rúben Dias

Manchester City’s center-half Dias was going out with popstar April Ivy, although they separated in 2021. Like many eligible guys in his position, there has been gossip that he is not averse to checking out the talent in the digital environment.

Nuno Mendes

Nicknamed ‘Kandimba,’ Sporting Lisbon’s Mendes is presently on loan to French giants Paris St-Germain. Although he has stated he is focusing on his football (he is only 19), his situation would make him an obvious candidate for discreetly flirting with prospective partners via his smart device! 

João Moutinho

Currently a hugely popular midfielder at English Premier side Wolves, Moutinho has worn the Portugal shirt over 140 times (being their second most-capped player in history.) Now entering a period when most footballers consider retirement, he is said to be producing vintage performances while aging ‘like a fine wine!’ His wife, Ana Sofia Gomes, who was his teenage sweetheart, is secretive about social media. She prefers to be under the radar, while her Insta account is private. These factors would make the respective parties prime candidates for tapping into the discreet communication channels offered by dating sites, away from the prying eyes of reporters. 

Professional footballers have a limited shelf life. Most are likely to gain first-team places in their late teens but might find themselves struggling a little to maintain the same match fitness by the time they reach 30. If they’ve signed to a major club during their peak years, they are very well paid. Of course, money isn’t everything. Females searching for a star player will also be hoping for a spark of personality, along the lines of the charismatic Cristiano Ronaldo. The beauty of online dating is not knowing who you might bump into!
