Are Niall and 1D boys hoping to recruit Ronaldo into their band?

WITH his slick hair, superstar style and model girlfriend, Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo would be a perfect fit for One Direction.

And footy-mad Niall Horan was beaming yesterday after he got to meet the soccer superstar.


Niall (19) – on the European leg of his band's tour – was in for a real treat when he and his bandmates got a meet and greet with some of Real Madrid's biggest stars.

The Mullingar man also posed with defender Sergio Ramos at the team's Ciudad Real Madrid training ground in Valdebebas, northeastern Madrid, which is 10km north of their Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

And it seems Niall wasn't the only one impressed with the meeting as after training, both Cristiano (28) and Spanish international Ramos (27) tweeted pictures with the Mullingar heartthrob

The 1D stars are in Madrid for two concerts.
