Manchester United star sparks Diego Maradona fiance break-up

Published Add your comment

Diego Maradona has reportedly dumped his fiance after becoming furious at stories she flirted and tried to make contact with a Manchester United star.

According to the Sunday People, false claims were made that Rocio Oliva tried to swap Twitter and Facebook details with Old Trafford number one David de Gea. Maradona recently had photos taken with some of David Moyes' squad while at a recent training camp in Dubai, where the said incident with Oliva is supposed to have happened.

It was has become a bizarre story, the Sunday People report claims De Gea has denied ever having met Maradona's 23-year-old fiance and the reported flirting between them never took place. However, it appears this has not prevented the Argentine legend's fury and further fear that Oliva may appear in a reality TV show and embarrass him was the last straw.

Manchester United's Spanish goalkeeper has a long-term girlfriend in Edurne Garcia Almagro, whom is a pop singer from their native country. Meanwhile, the Sunday People have a quote from Maradona's nephew, who suggests Oliva may be looking for someone young.

“A goalkeeper perhaps," Chino Lacoste is quoted as saying.

Old Trafford boss David Moyes is unlikely to welcome any kind of scandal involving his squad, as this season has thrown up enough problems for him to deal with from on the pitch. However, this appears to be a celebrity scandal that won't quite have the weight to rock the boat at the struggling Premier League title holders.
