The 35-year old has impressed Mourinho enough to warrant a new one-year deal
Michael Carrick is set to be handed a new one-year deal at Man United.
According to reports today, the midfielder – despite nearing the end of his career – is set to stay on at Old Trafford for at least another season, with the Red Devils ready to offer him a one-year contract extension.
Still an important player
Although he has struggled for games at times, he has proved that he still has what it takes to help control United’s midfield with slick passing and tackling ability and his link-up play has been good.
He’s become a regular first-team player over the last few weeks and is often reliable in the centre of the field.
He has clearly impressed boss Jose Mourinho, who was believed to originally want to let go of Carrick. However, it appears his view has changed with the Special One now hoping to keep the Englishman at Old Trafford.
A new deal will be placed on the table in the next few weeks and Carrick is likely to put pen-to-paper on the deal to keep his United career going.
