De Gea has been widely-tipped to join English champions Manchester United and Argentina forward Aguero declared he would like to leave the Vicente Calderon stadium last week.

"Aguero is still an Atletico player and my intention is to keep him here," Caminero told AS.

"I want to talk with him, see what he thinks and make a decision from that point, but today he is an Atletico player and a player everybody wants.''

On De Gea, Caminero remarked: "He remains an Atletico player.''
