Carrick keen to sign new Man Utd contract
Michael Carrick wants to extend his stay at Manchester United, Sky Sports has reported, with the England midfielder eager to remain at the Premier League champions for the foreseeable future.
Carrick moved to United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 and has gone on to make more than 300 appearances for the club, winning the title on five occasions and becoming a crucial member of the team under Sir Alex Ferguson and now David Moyes.
And despite being in his early 30s, he has no intention of winding down his career. “I'd love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club,” Carrick said.
“It's a fantastic club, I've had great times here,” he continued. “I feel good at the moment, I've just turned 32 so I've got a bit of time yet.”
Carrick also insisted that United would turn around their patchy early season form, with the club currently sitting 12th in the table after three wins and three defeats from their opening six games. “You have periods, whether it is through seasons or through years when things don't quite go right,” he said.
“You just have to face it and find a way to get through it.You can't hide and go under. You have to respond. That is what we will do,” the former West Ham midfielder added.
