| Last updated
Manchester United midfielder Fred has changed agents ahead of a possible move away this summer, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The recent arrival of Mason Mount from Chelsea has cast major doubt over Fred's future at the club, with United planning for at least one midfielder to leave this summer.
After the FA Cup final last month, Fred conceded he could have played his final game for the club.
"I still don't know, I have to talk with my family," said the Brazil international.
"I still have one year left on my contract here. Now it's holiday time and a good opportunity to rest. I'll talk to my staff, to the club, and see what everyone's decision is.
"I do have to talk with [Erik] ten Hag as well; he's the manager and the conversation has to involve everyone. We have to see how next season will play out.
"I want to be important; I want to help the team, so we'll see. But I've always been and still am very happy at Manchester United."
Meanwhile, news that Fred has now changed agents has added fuel to speculation that he will leave the Red Devils this summer.
Fred changes agents amid interest from Fulham
Fred was previously represented by former Arsenal and Brazil midfielder Gilberto Silva, but has decided to switch to Brazilian agency Energy Sports, who oversaw Gabriel Jesus's move from Manchester City to Arsenal last year.
Romano confirmed the news on Twitter, stating: "Understand Fred has now picked new agents, same group as Gabriel Jesus.
"He could leave as Fulham will bid for Fred but also Saudi clubs want him.
"He’s under contract until 2024 at Man United but understands that playing a more important role is key now for his future."
Fulham boss Marco Silva was spotted speaking with Fred outside Old Trafford after United's 2-1 victory in their final Premier League match of last season, with a move to Craven Cottage on the cards this summer.
