Smalling signs up with new agency amid doubts over Man United future

Date Posted,June 13, 2017

Chris Smalling has ditched his agent amid rumours of a summer transfer.

The Manchester United defender had been represented by Wasserman Media Group before switching to OmniSports.

Smalling was unveiled by his new agent on Twitter while on England duty – with the defender expected to face France on Tuesday night.

The centre back has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Everton after United agreed a £30.7m transfer fee for Victor Lindelof from Benfica.

Lindelof is expected to be make a partnership with Eric Bailly as Jose Mourinho attempts to create a new defensive dynasty at Old Trafford.

Smalling was criticised by Mourinho last season over his fitness record at United after the defender suffered a broken toe.

The Portuguese boss said about Smalling and teammate Phil Jones: “It’s not just about them. It’s about the philosophy and mentality around them. Cautious. Cautious. Cautious. Just a cautious approach.

“It’s a profile, it’s the philosophy of work. Just that.”

“I think the fact that we are fighting for important things still is a good motivation to keep people together, to make people make an extra effort.”

Smalling has been at United since 2010 after he moved from Fulham for £12m – he has since played 243 times for the club.
