Manchester United's off contract striker Michael Owen is changing agents.

The Daily Mail says Owen, whose Manchester United contract ends on Saturday, has switched to a new agent for the final move of his playing career.

Owen, who was managed by sports agency giants Wasserman Media Group, is now being looked after by ex-Umbro executive Simon Marsh, who has been a close friend of the former England striker since he signed for the brand as a 15-year-old.

Marsh, who parted company with Umbro after the Nike takeover, is setting up his own football agency and Owen is the first client. He was in Dubai on Owen’s behalf last week discussing the mooted move to Al Shabab, who had been competing with Stoke for his signature.
