Gunners on alert as Michael Carrick could be leaving United

The midfield man is yet to enter negotiations with the Manchester club

It is widely speculated that Manchester United’s holding midfielder Michael Carrick may well have made his final appearance for the club last night.

The former England international played a part in United’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford, but all the signs are there to suggest he is leaving the club at the end of the season.

The 34-year old is out of contract and admitted back in March that he was yet to hold talks with the club over a new deal, and he has remained quiet ever since.

If he is not offered new terms then his final game in a Red Devils’ shirt could well be the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace at the new Wembley this Saturday.


Rumours also circulated when it was revealed that Carrick’s children, son Jacey and daughter Louise, accompanied him onto the pitch as his mascots.

The same thing was done by Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra when they both played their final games at the Theatre of Dreams, again suggesting that this could be Carrick’s goodbye.

Shockingly, Arsenal have emerged as the frontrunners to sign the former Tottenham Hotspur man in the summer.
