Paris Hilton wants to be the new Victoria Beckham.

The socialite was seen getting close to Cristiano Ronaldo in Los Angeles this week and reportedly wooed the soccer ace by telling him they could be more famous than the former Spice Girls star - nicknamed Posh - and her husband, sporting icon David Beckham.

She is quoted by Britain's News of the World newspaper as telling him: "We could be great together, you know.

"We're both so famous we'd become even bigger than David Beckham and Posh Spice. We're way hotter and younger than them anyway!"

Cristiano has recently signed for Spanish club Real Madrid and Paris is so enamoured with her new lover she is considering moving with him.

She told a friend: "I told him I'm going to move to Madrid to be with him. I promised."

The 28-year-old heiress is said to be worried her fame has slumped since she began dating 'The Hills' star Dug Reinhardt - who she split from earlier this week - and thinks dating the 24-year-old soccer star is the perfect way to boost her profile.

A friend said: "Doug was just a washed-up reality TV star. All of a sudden there wasn't as much interest in Paris, and her appearance fees were cut dramatically. She was working like a dog to make the same amount of money as before. She knows if she wins over Ronaldo she'll be one of the hottest properties again."
