A Spanish sports reporter has claimed that shamed Brazilian football superstar Dani Alves once tried to steal his pornstar girlfriend.
Alves, 39, is remanded in custody following his arrest on 20th January for an alleged sexual assault in a Barcelona nightclub on 30th December.
Now sports broadcaster Pipi Estrada has claimed that the star once tried to date adult film actress Miriam Sanchez while he was in a relationship with her.
Estrada, 65, told Spanish media: “I was a good friend of Dani Alves until one day I discovered that he was sending messages to my daughter’s mother.”
Estrada and Sanchez were together from 2006 to 2013 and had a daughter, who is now aged 15.
Brazilian Alves played in Spain – for Sevilla and notably Barcelona – from 2003 to 2016 and again from 2021 to 2022.
Estrada went on: “I was with my daughter’s mother in [dating game show] Mujeres y Hombres y Viceversa and one day I discovered that he had sent her a message telling her that he would like to meet her.”
Estrada added: “It was all an innocent game, kind of like insinuations. Yes, he was insinuating… And he knew she was with me, of course.”
And, the journalist revealed: “He sent her little pink kisses, something I never understood.”
Dani Alves is the most decorated player in the history of football, with 46 titles at senior level and 47 official titles overall.
The right-back is now facing claims that he made a woman touch his penis against her will before ordering her to follow him into a nightclub lavatory.
There, he is alleged to have thrown her onto the ground, forced her to give him oral sex, slapped her when she resisted, then raped her.
