Rafa Márquez and Jaydy Mitchel spent a few days vacationing together in a Mexican resort in the town of Puerto Vallarta. A Mexican magazine published pictures of Alejandro Sanz’s ex smiling next to the soccer player as the twosome lounged poolside at a resort.

This just might confirm rumors dating back to 2006 that have linked the 28-year old soccer player to the model, 31. Photos of Márquez and Mitchel at restaurant in Spain appeared everywhere, sparking speculations of a romantic liaison. From then on, the rumors have just escalated.

The talk caused the separation of the soccer star from Mexican actress Adriana Lavat in January of 2006. They have two children, Santiago and Rafaela.

Mitchel was married to Spanish singer Sanz, 38, for five years. They have a daughter, Manuela. The couple separated in 2005.
