Cristiano Ronaldo, the Real Madrid forward, has reportedly become the father of surrogate twins.
According to reports in the Portuguese media, the children, a boy and girl called Eva and Mateo, were born on Thursday.
The two children were born in the United States. Ronaldo is already a father to one son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, who is now six years old.
The news was followed by reports this morning by Portuguese sports paper A Bola, which said Manchester United are preparing a 200-million euro transfer swoop for the Real Madrid star.
