The Barcelona legend posted a picture next to Clara – who is 12 years his junior – with the pair smiling for the camera.

It comes after Pique, 35, and Shakira, 45, split last year when the Spaniard was believed to have left her for 23-year-old Clara.

The pair have been engaged in a sour falling-out since they parted ways after a 12-year romance.

Shakira even released a diss track on her former partner, who she shares two kids with, Sasha, seven, and Milan, ten.

The singer’s explosive song left little doubt that she is referring to her former partner and his younger lover.

In the new track, she takes a swipe at Clara’s age with the lyrics: “I’m worth two 22s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo, you traded a Rolex for a Casio.”

And Pique responded to the song by turning up to work in an £8,000 Renault Twingo.

It was also reported that Shakira recruited a team of professionals to snoop on her ex before their split last year.

She is said to have hired a private investigator to trail Pique to confirm her suspicions.

The super sleuth spotted the footballer frequenting the nightclub where his now girlfriend worked, Marca reports.

It is thought the singer was getting her ducks in a row before the inevitable bitter court showdown over custody of their children and their £12million mansion.

Rumours have also swirled that Shakira first smelt a rat after taking a look in her fridge at their five-storey Barcelona property.

The recording artist is said to have returned home from a period of travelling to find a jar of her strawberry jam had been eaten.

It’s been claimed that Pique follows a strict diet and would not have tucked into the jam – and neither would her children.

The star is then said to have come to the conclusion that someone else – more specifically another woman – had been in her home, and her fridge.

Clara is a PR student who is employed by Pique’s events production company, Kosmos.

Pique is thought to have met her through the organisation.

Shakira announced her shocking break-up with the World Cup winner last June.

Her publicist’s statement read: “For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect their privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”
