Manchester United should announce by the end of the week that England midfielder Michael Carrick has agreed a new deal to stay at the Premier League champions, the
Carrick is said to have agreed a two-and-a-half year extension to his existing contract, with an option for a further year as the former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker looks to end his career at Old Trafford. Carrick, 32, moved to United from Spurs in 2006 and has gone on to play 333 times for the club, scoring 20 goals.
Currently sidelined with an Achilles injury, Carrick was forced to pull out of the international friendlies with Chile and Germany and faces a further six weeks on the disabled list, potentially ruling him out of United’s remaining fixtures for the calendar year. It is claimed by the Mail that Carrick’s new terms will maintain his pay packet at £3.5m per year.
Carrick began his professional career at West Ham, making his debut in 1998 and going on to play more than 150 times for the Hammers before switching to Tottenham in 2004. Carrick also took in loan spells at Swindon Town and Birmingham City.
