Carrick’s Manchester United future in question

The Red Devils are yet to offer Carrick a new contract

Michael Carrick could be set to leave Manchester United this summer, with the club yet to offer the 34-year-old a new deal.

The midfielder’s contract runs out this summer, and with questions being raised about who will be in charge at Old Trafford next season, those talks are on hold.

Having being a consistent performer for the Red Devils, since joining the club from Tottenham in 2006, Carrick has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League, to name some of his achievements.

The former Tottenham midfielder has seen players come and go during his time at the club, but questions about his future could mean his United career is over.

Interest from Asia

As is becoming the norm for players entering the latter stages of the career, Carrick is reportedly attracting interest from China – where fellow former England teammate John Terry is looking likely to leave for this summer – and could move to Asia if no deal is struck.

Carrick has featured 29 times under Louis Van Gaal this season, and his fitness hasn’t wavered either. But a potential managerial change this summer means that United are yet to commit to giving the England midfielder a new deal.

Jose Mourinho has been heavily tipped to take over at Old Trafford this summer, therefore, it would be down to the former Chelsea boss to decide whether Carrick features in his plans.

Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson hasn’t ruled out including the United midfielder in his England squad that will head to the European Championships in France, this summer.
