Out with the old and in with the new!

Emporio Armani Underwear announced today that 24-year-old Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo will be the official new face (or body) of the line, as well as Armani Jeans starting Spring/Summer 2010.

The younger Ronaldo replaces David Beckham and may be following in the older footballer's footsteps: Cristiano currently plays for Beckham's former team Real Madrid.

While Beckham isn't taking the hit lying down -- he's currently in talks with several companies to create his own underwear line, we're also happy to see some new blood for spring 2010.

As we previously reported, Victoria Beckham is also out at Emporio Armani Underwear, so who will star alongside (or on top of?) the dashing soccer player in those steamy campaigns?

Will those rumors that Angelina Jolie would be stripping down for the racy ads now become a reality? (DB's marriage is no longer standing in the way.) Just sayin'.

Leave a comment with who you'd like to see! And stay tuned...

Beckham may not be posing in his skivvies for Emporio Armani Underwear anymore, but he's been keeping busy with his new Adidas Originals line.
