About two months after the announcement of the separation between Gerard Piqué and the singer Shakira, the Catalan defender already has his name speculated in a new romance. According to ‘The Sun’, the Barcelona player is dating a 23-year-old student.
The British newspaper revealed that the 35-year-old defender “has been secretly dating for the last few months a student who works for him”. The woman in question would be Clara Chia Marti, a public relations student 12 years younger than the athlete.
However, the publication did not say whether the affair would have started before or after the breakup of the 11-year relationship with the Colombian, announced in early June.
Piqué and Marti would have known each other because she works in events at ‘Kosmos’, Piqué’s production company. People close to both told ‘The Sun’ that the new couple has been seeing each other “for quite some time”.
“They’ve been keeping quiet about their relationship, but everyone around them knows what’s going on,” a source said. “People helped him keep their romance a secret and cleaned up Clara’s social media accounts so they can’t find pictures of her. That alone makes his friends think Piqué is really serious about being with her,” he added.
Now separated, the defender and Shakira are defining how they will deal with the future of their two children. The Colombian woman wants Sasha and Milan to move with her to Miami, in the United States, while Piqué doesn’t want to stay away from the boys, according to the international press.
