Italy international Mario Balotelli dated the former girlfriends of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo many years ago, it has emerged.

Thompson reportedly dated Balotelli for six weeks. She compared her involvement with the Italian striker to Rooney, as per the Sun newspaper:

'Wayne Rooney may be the better footballer but when it comes to performance off the pitch Mario beats him in every way.'

Few months after Balotelli broke up with Thompson, the ex-Inter Milan forward set his eyes on Cristiano Ronaldo's former lover Raffaela Fico.

Fico, who was also regular on Italian television, is alleged to have had a relationship with the Portugal captain before she met Balotelli in 2012.

As noted by Bleacher Report, Fico became famous after making an appearance in Italian Big Brother and through a hoax in which she offered to sell her v*rginity for 1 million euros.

She had an 11-month relationship with Ronaldo back in 2009, and dated Balotelli for five months in 2011, according to the Mirror.

"Balotelli is much sweeter than Cristiano Ronaldo ," Fico said, quoted by Mirror. "Mario is a good person, he is good, what you see on the outside does not correspond to the private."

Balotelli’s relationship with Fico caused a lot of stir, as she broke up with him a few months after they started dating - with the football star accusing the Italian model of cheating.

She then got pregnant months later and Balotelli did not want to accept the child as his without a DNA test.

However, he learnt to coexist with her after that – even though the two are not together anymore.
