After her breakup with the Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo, will Russian supermodel Irina Shayk grab a basketball superstar for a rebound?

Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks' Greek Freak, is now making his moves after learning that Shayk, 29, is back on the market, New York Daily News reported.

The 20-year-old Antetokounmpo (@G_ante34) posted on Twitter on Sunday: "I heard that Irina Shayk is single.. Should I DM her?? Or you guys think is too early?? Hahahahha"

The Bucks forward is apparently copying the play of 76ers center Joel Embiid who "made a slide with Kim Kardashian" on Twitter in July.

"Hey I want you to come slide in my DMs @KimKardashian," Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) wrote.

He retorted after learning that Kardashian was already married to Kanye West. "Oh I didn't know you were married sorry @KimKardashian just saw it from the fan's tweet... have a nice day."

Antetokounmpo has his reasons for hesitating to reach Shayk, whose five-year relationship with Ronaldo was confirmed to have ended only last week.

"We can confirm Irina Shayk has ended her relationship to Cristiano Ronaldo of five years. She has been close with his family throughout the course of their relationship," a representative of Shayk told US Magazine. "Any negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false, and have not been a factor in the cause of the spilt. Irina has no further comment at the time."

Talks about the breakup surfaced when Ronaldo, who was feted to join the elite band of players to have won two consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Or awards, came to the awarding in Zurich sans Shayk on Monday.

Irina's PR representative claimed she did not attend the awards because of other commitments, a reason met with raised eyebrows since the ceremony is scheduled a year in advance.

Shayk also reportedly unfollowed Ronaldo on Twitter, Yahoo Sports said.

Last year was tough for the couple as the split was already brewing in July when Ronaldo did not attend the premiere of "Hercules" where Shayk starred, the US Magazine article said. They also spent the New Year separately.

A source close to Ronaldo told Portuguese daily Correio da Manha that the reason for the breakup was that Shayk was "unwilling to give up her career and become a stay-at-home wife and mum," as translated by The Daily Express.

The source said, "Cristiano wanted to surprise his mum and as he spent Christmas with Irina in Dubai, he had planned to be with him mum on her birthday, but Irina didn't want to go."

He added that Shaysk's relationship with Ronaldo's mother, Dolores, hit the rocks after she said that the Russian model "wasn't the right woman."

Fans received the split oddly-well, maybe because the hotties are available for them now.
