New Manchester United netminder Sergio Romero has phoned into a show on Argentine television to deny that his wife slept with international team mate Sergio Aguero.

There were rumours that the striker had a fling with Eliana Guercio in 2006 before her marriage to Romero in 2008 and the pair had been involved in a bitter feud.

“I have a great wife and a great family. It’s not nice when some people say this kind of stuff," Romero said.

Speaking about Aguero, he said: “I’m friends with him for over 10 years, imagine that. I couldn’t talk to him, but for sure I’m going to call him. Listen, we’re friends."

Guercio also took time to deny the claims, saying: “It is not true. I have never had anything with Aguero. It seems terrible to me that they could link me with Kun [Aguero]. This is over 10 years old and for 10 years I’ve had to keep denying that anything happened. I don’t even know Aguero.

"I have two daughters and I am still being punished for this, I don’t know why, I don’t know what I’ve done. They’re inventing a soap opera."

“He [Romero] is totally divine. Instead of annoying me, he calms me down. The two of them have played together for the national team for 10 years and I don’t think they’ve even talked about it, they get on really well."
