SOCCER heart-throb CRISTIANO RONALDO’s new girlfriend is pretty fit — she’s a gym instructor
The Brazilian beauty, named only as Gabriela, 27, waved a poster of him at an international.
Ronaldo, 24, invited her to watch him play after meeting at a nightclub in Portugal.
Pals say she then jetted to England to spend a WEEK with the Manchester United star at his £4million home.
A friend of Gabriela — known as Gabi — said: “They’ve ended up dating. He’s fascinated by her athletic body. She says he’s attentive and romantic.”
Another pal said: “They’re a match made in heaven.
“Like Cristiano she never touches alcohol, and she’s as fit as she is beautiful.”
Gabi works at a gym in Sintra, near Lisbon. Ronaldo hired a car to get her to his country’s friendly win over Finland last month.
It spells the end for his fling with Manchester student Olivia Saunders, 18. A pal said: “She was realistic about his womanising.”

Asked if it`s true he puts body lotion on every night before bed, she confirmed: "Yes, he does."
Would that be to ensure a sliding tackle, Ron?
Wonder winger Ronaldo scored a free kick from 41 yards against Arsenal this week to help put Manchester United in the Champions` League final-but in a one on one in the bedroom he forgets all about attacking play.
"He`s very affectionate in bed. He`s not aggressive at all. He lets things flow," said 28-year-old Gabriela.
She dated the 24-year-old Portuguese superstar for a whole six weeks after meeting him in a Lisbon nightclub in February.
Even then, he got one of his pals to do all the running.
Gabriela revealed: "He made the approach, but through a friend. He sent him to say he wanted to talk to me. As I didn`t believe it, I sent him away.
"Then Ronaldo came up to me. We exchanged half a dozen words and he went back to his friends. We spoke again, but through the friend, who was messenger. He carried messages from me and him, to and fro."
At the end of the evening Ronaldo finally plucked up the courage to ask for her number.Gabriela said: "Three minutes after leaving the disco, he was already ringing me. He wanted me to go to him.
"I didn`t want to leave my friends alone and as I only knew him from television, I decided not to go. I stayed dancing in the disco."
But he was not easily put off. "He spent days sending me messages. Ronaldo is the message boy. The first messages weren`t so direct.
"He asked me what I`d thought of him. Then he started to me ask if I wanted to meet and get to know him."
He invited her and three pals to watch him in action in Portugal`s friendly against Finland four days after they had met. He laid on a hire car and took the girls out after the game.
Gabriela, who moved to Portugal from Brazil in 2001 and married a fitness instructor, was pictured in the crowd at the game holding up a poster of the star.
She said: "Ronaldo invited me to a match of the Portuguese national team, in the Algarve, and I took three friends. I didn`t have the courage to go alone. Later we all went out together."After the match she jetted to the UK to spend a week with Ronaldo at his £4million home in Cheshire. "I spent a week there. His house is enormous. We went out for supper twice, but I have to admit we spent a lot of time at home," she said.
The romance was getting so serious that when Ronaldo, who famously winked after getting Wayne Rooney sent off during Euro 2004, bought a nightclub in Lisbon he asked Gabriela to run it for him.
But the relationship started to fizzle out when Gabriela`s dad, a police chief in Portugal, raised objections. And Ronaldo blew the final whistle on their fling last month after photographs of the pair together taken on her camera appeared in a Portuguese newspaper.
Divorced Gabriela revealed: "It`s a strange story. Some friends took photos of me with Ronaldo, which afterwards ended up in the press. It was a sad situation."
Ronaldo has had a string or short romances including former Hollyoaks star Gemma Atkinson (seven months), wannabe model Nereida Gallardo (five months), swimwear model Niki Ghazian (one night) and hookers Tyese Cunningham and Gemma Storey
