Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero may be a direct rival of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, but the pair remains close friends.

The duo first saw their paths cross in Spain at Atletico Madrid, with two seasons spent working alongside one another as senior stars.

Both then completed moves to England in the summer of 2011, with big-money deals taking them to opposing sides of the Manchester divide.

They have locked horns on a regular basis since linking up with City and United, but their friendship away from the field remains as strong as ever.

Aguero admitted as much to The Sun at the premiere of a new Amazon documentary which offers an insight to the goings-on at the Etihad Stadium called All or Nothing: Manchester City: “I hang out a lot with David because we played together for Atletico Madrid.

“We have a good friendship from Atletico… but he now plays for United and I play for City.”
