London, July 7 : Critiano Ronaldo's ladylove Nereida Gallardo has reportedly asked him not to leave Manchester United for Spanish club Real Madrid for she wants to become the UK's top WAG.
The 24-year-old model is said to have told her footie ace beau that she's terrified of being "lost in the crowd" if she moves to Spain with him, even though it happens to be her native country.
"Nereida has been gobsmacked by the publicity here and she has certainly been revelling in it," the Daily Star quoted a source, as saying.
"She's been regularly splashed across the front pages. When she walks down the street in Britain she gets recognised, and when she goes out to clubs and parties she always gets VIP treatment.
"She has fast become used to this A-list lifestyle and doesn't want to give it up just yet."
And while she failed to make it big back in Spain, PR pundits believe that she will have no problem doing so if she remains in the UK.
"She's definitely a marketing man's dream," said one PR man.
"Now that Posh and Becks are tucked away on the other side of the Atlantic, Ronaldo and Nereida could easily set their sights on becoming the soccer king and the queen WAG," he added.
