‘Even though Wayne and Cristiano are no longer team-mates they are good pals,’ a source said. ‘Coleen has been helping Georgina with advice around settling in in Cheshire, because they have obviously spent years there.

‘Coleen knows it can be a lot being with a footballer so wanted to reach out to show that she is there for her. They have swapped messages and hope to go out for a lunch date next month.’

Portugese Ronaldo recently returned to the football club, having originally played for them between 2003 and 2009. Wayne joined in 2004 and left in 2017.

This comes after Georgina admitted she wants the footballer to propose to her.

The former sales assistant, who met the Manchester United player five years ago, is the subject of a fly-on-the-wall Netflix series, the teaser of which dropped last month.

In it she is badgered by pals about whether or not Cristiano, 36, will pop the question.

‘It doesn’t depend on me… I wish,’ she tells her friends over dinner, giving a knowing nod to her boyfriend.

She then says ‘Ojala’ – a Spanish term that loosely translates into ‘Should God will it’ and ‘Let’s hope so’. 

Argentinean Georgina, 27, shares a daughter, three, with the athlete – who has three other children. 

The show, called Soy Georgina, follows her at home, with her family, and at events with friends.

She is also seen on a lavish boat, on the red carpet, hosting parties and praying at church.

She is also seen by the pool with Cristiano and the kids, at one point kissing him as they share a private moment.

Ronaldo’s mum Dolores Aveiro, 66, recently shot down rumours that she has a rocky relationship with her son’s partner Georgina.

Speaking on the Sporting Lisbon podcast, the doting mum gushed that Georgina was a ‘good girl’ and a ‘great support’ to the Man United striker.   

Father-of-four Ronaldo met Buenos Aires-born Georgina when she was working as a sales assistant in Gucci in Madrid five years ago and has been loved-up ever since.

Appearing to rubbish reports she doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with the stunning brunette, Dolores said: ‘Yes, yes, she’s a good girl.’ 

Dolores also admitted that although Cristiano is an ‘exemplary father’ he has lots of help from his partner and a team of nannies.

She revealed: ‘Cristiano is an exemplary father but he has people to help. The children have nannies and they have staff who do a lot of things. 

‘Four kids are a lot of work. Georgina is a great support to Cristiano, no doubt about it.’

Dolores also revealed she lost her sense of smell and taste after a life-threatening stroke last year – but insisted her love of football remains unaffected.

The Madeira-based mum-of-four, is campaigning to get her youngest son to finish his career at Sporting Lisbon. 

She also admitted she had yet to make a full recovery from the stroke she suffered in March last year at her home in the Madeiran capital Funchal following her battle with breast cancer.

She was rushed to hospital for a life-saving op following the stroke, with her footballer son jetting to see her from his then-home in Italy when he learned the news.

Dolores, who lives at a seven-storey apartment block overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Funchal which Cristiano purchased in 2019, revealed: ‘I don’t move my arm well, and as for speech, I stutter a lot. I notice my tongue sticking.

‘I lost my sense of smell and taste. I can’t smell anything or taste it. Little by little I will recover, God willing.’ 

But in the candid interview the 66-year-old insisted: ‘I adore football.

‘If you invite me to dinner and there’s a match on, I won’t go to eat and and I’ll stay in and watch the game instead. Even if Ronaldo’s not playing, I’m always watching.’ 

Supporter: Dolores said that despite her health struggles she is still a die hard football fan and will watch a game even if Ronaldo isn’t playing (pictured in September) 

The diehard Sporting Lisbon fan, who earlier in the week admitted she dreamed of seeing Cristiano return to his old club, added: ‘I’ve already asked him if he wants to be a coach when he stops playing.

‘He told me he wants to enjoy life. He’ll play until he’s 40.’

And Dolores has high hopes for her grandson Ronaldo Jnr as she recently revealed that her grandson is better than the sporting legend was at his age. 

She gushed of the family legacy: ‘At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo. At the time, Ronaldo didn’t have a coach, but today Ronaldo is his son’s teacher.’
