London, June 9 : Soccer idol Cristiano Ronaldo is known to be generous with gifts to girlfriends, but the winger seems to lack generosity when it comes to buying them a ring.
The Manchester United star's present model girlfriend Nereida Gallardo was spotted with the same ring, as worn by his ex-love TV presenter Merche Romero.
Ronaldo dated Romero for eight months in 2006. They also planned to marry before Romero dumped him in October of that year.
"Cristiano is generous with gifts to girlfriends," The Sun quoted a source as saying.
"It looks like it cost a few quid so maybe he is recycling it," the source added.
Nereida Gallardo had fuelled marriage rumours with the Portuguese star after she was spotted flashing a diamond ring on her engagement finger.
