PHOTOS: The bromance EVERYONE is talking about at Old Trafford

Wayne Rooney

Wayne has developed Juan hell of a relationship with his Manchester United buddy.

Football is littered with will-they, won't-they F.R.I.E.N.D.S style story-lines depicting the likelihood of two bro characters hitting it off in such style that they end up bonding - right in front of the camera lens.

Just look at Chelsea - Frank Lampard and John Terry clearly depict the Joey/Chandler relationship. Former Barcelona star Zlatan Ibrahimovic was close with his Catalan team-mate Gerard Pique, Spain stars Francesc Fabregas and David Villa enjoy a good cuddle, while Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo was clearly enamoured with current Arsenal player Mesut Ozil - largely because he played him in on so many occasions.

Even in Manchester United's past teams, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes engaged in a lip-smacking image that is now one of the most circulated photographs on the internet.

Of course, there are now new kids on the Old Trafford courting block…

"He's a fantastic player, experienced in the Premier League and you can see his qualities," Rooney recently said in the Daily Mail of his new best bud Juan Mata, a Spaniard who quickly develops friendly relationships with those in his squad - just ask Fernando Torres.

"He creates goals, he scores goals and he's a very nice person too," Rooney said in a concluding statement that is really news to no-one considering, by the photographs above and below, how they have quickly gone from acquaintances to bros.
