Harry Styles starts bro-mance with Rio Ferdinand

London: Harry Styles and Rio Ferdinand were spotted having a man-date on Saturday – with the ‘One Direction’ star’s old chum, Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, nowhere in sight.

The two friends spent almost 12 hours together in Manchester; their day of fun began when the 19-year-old singer dashed away after a One Direction matinee show and was given pride of place at Old Trafford, as Manchester United played Reading.

He tweeted an image and wrote, “Made it just in time for kick off.”

Styles was later seen racing back to join 1D on stage for an evening show of the ‘Take Me Home’ tour, which was also attended by Ferdinand.

“Just at the 1Direction concert… ear drums are struggling… never heard so much screaming!! Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!! Lads on fire!” the footie ace tweeted.

Styles tweeted back an image of himself wearing Ferdinand’s Manchester United shirt and wrote, “Hope you enjoyed the show tonight Rio.”

Ferdinand then invited Styles to meet his parents over dinner at his Italian restaurant back in town and kept the kitchen open late especially for the midnight snack.
