Manchester United midfielder Fred has changed agents amid interest linking him with Fulham and the Saudi Arabia Pro League.
The Brazilian defensive midfielder is under contract at Old Trafford until 2024 but fell down the pecking order under Erik Ten Hag last season following the arrivals of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and the January signing of Marcel Sabitzer on loan.
Fred set to leave Old Trafford?
And the arrival of Mason Mount from Chelsea is likely to further limit the veteran midfielder’s first-team opportunities next season with the Brazilian international widely expected to leave before the transfer window slams shut on 1 September.
In preparation for this, Fred has decided to act this summer and choose the same agent as his Brazilian compatriot teammate Gabriel Jesus.
Fred is believed to be keen on a move in order to regain his first-team place elsewhere according to Fabrizio Romano with the Brazilian now heading into the twilight of his playing career after turning 30 in March.
