Who is Lorena Manas?

Lorena Manas has established herself as one of football’s prominent Wags.

She was born on March 25, 1999.

The Sun previously reported she hails from Almeria, a seaside city in the south of Spain.

The Spaniard has built a big social media following of her own with an Instagram page rich in bikini pics and a curious bio that translates to “I’m everything you won’t see here”.

However, the page is now set to private.

How long have Lorena Manas and Darwin Nunez been together?

Lorena has reportedly been loved up with Darwin Nunez since his playing days at Spanish club Almeria.

Nunez played for Almeria from 2019-20 before joining big Lisbon club Benfica.

He signed for Liverpool in a £85m deal in 2022.

The pair share a son together – named Darwin after his footballer father.

Lorena gave birth to Darwin – her second child – in January 2022.

Following Darwin’s birth, Lorena shared a touching message alongside a photo of her in hospital with the Uruguayan international.

She said: “I would like you to fall down many times and always get up because that would mean you live intensely and without fear.

“I would like you to be nice to those who are in an underprivileged situation and unforgiving with those who abuse others, that you have the courage to take your own decisions and that nobody marks out your path.”

In July 2024, Nunez was seen protecting Lorena and their son after nasty scenes following a match between Uruguay and Colombia.

A scuffle broke out between supporters in the stands but Nunez climbed up from the players’ bench to remonstrate.

How long were Lorena Manas and Aleix Vidal married for?

Before meeting Nunez, Lorena was coupled with ex-Barcelona star Aleix Vidal.

They were reportedly married during Vidal’s time at the massive La Liga club, which spanned from 2015-2018.

The couple have a daughter together named Chloe.

When did Lorena Manas and Aleix Vidal get divorced?

Lorena is said to have split from Vidal in the spring of 2018.

The pair went their separate ways with Vidal moving to Sevilla before a two-year contract with Espanyol to finish his career.

Lorena has reportedly maintained a cordial relationship with Lionel Messi’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo.

Messi is a Barcelona legend, having scored 474 goals between 2004-2021 – meaning Lorena shared Barca Wag status with Antonela during Vidal’s playing days there.

Lorena could soon be returning to the Barca stands, with Nunez reportedly eyeing a move ahead of the 2024/2025 season.
