Beckham and Ronaldo: The top 10 footballers 'your wife wants to sleep with'

Inter Miami CF Media Availability & Training Session

David Beckham has been named the footballer that your wife wants to sleep with the most.

Yes, really. According to The Sun, the Inter Miami owner topped a recent vote that suggests nobody in the beautiful game is on the minds of as many spouses as him.

And to be fair, Beckham was near the front of the queue when looks were handed out and seems to have been setting fashion trends since his early Manchester United days.

Give or take the cornrows and mohawk, Beckham has been perfectly sculpting his appearance for decades and has never been too far away from magazine covers.

So, perhaps it's no surprise that this new study has given credence to football fans chanting that they'd let certain players 's*** their wife.'

Sexiest footballers in the world

However, Beckham wasn't alone on this, erm, interesting list and plenty more footballing stars are inhabiting the imaginations of wives around the world. 

Global stars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are leaving plenty of jaws dropped, although neither make the top five, while Tottenham's Paulo Gazzaniga is a surprise hit with the ladies.

Plus, it wouldn't be one of these lists without Olivier Giroud, but the Chelsea striker is forced to settle for joint sixth with Gerard Pique who, sadly for the wives in question, is married to Shakira.

Footballers 'your wife wants to sleep with'

But let's not get too in-depth about the chiselled physiques and sexy countenances on offer, so we'll just allow you to peruse the list at your own p̶l̶e̶a̶s̶u̶r̶e̶  leisure.

10. Sergio Ramos - 3.75%

9. Lionel Messi - 5%

8. Cristiano Ronaldo - 6.25%

=6. Gerard Pique - 7.5%

=6. Olivier Giroud - 7.5%

5. Marco Asensio - 8.75%

4. Andre Gomes - 11.25%

3. Ruben Loftus-Cheek - 13.75%

2. Paulo Gazzaniga -15%

1. David Beckham - 21.25%

There's some surprising names in there, let's not deny it.

We're not saying that players like Loftus-Cheek and Gazzaniga aren't attractive, because they are, but we've been blissfully oblivious to the clear hype around their sex appeal. 

Plus, if we know Ramos, then we're pretty sure he'll be unhappy about finishing behind Messi, although we have no idea how many wives he'll have to impress to claw back the deficit.

Meanwhile, Gomes and Asensio will be happy that long-term injuries haven't curtailed their popularity with the opposite sex as much as it has their time on the pitch.

But for all intents and purposes, we hope that you and not Beckham remain the number one with your wife, if you even have one or - who knows? - maybe you're the wife in question. No judgement here.
