Midfielder won’t sign new deal
Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is ready to walk away from the club at the end of the season, according to reports.
The 34-year-old has had an illustrious career at Old Trafford since joining them from Tottenham Hotspur back in 2006, but with his contract expiring in a few months time, he believes it’s the right time to leave the club for one last challenge.
Carrick has won the Premier League and the Champions League during his stay with United, but after recent new arrivals at the club, his importance in the first-team has diminished, and due to his age, he wants to be playing regular first-team football as much as possible.
Carrick Ready To Move On
The arrivals of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin have pushed Carrick down to third choice, meaning his game-time is limited.
According to reports, United are keen on offering the 34-year-old a new deal in order to keep him at the club, but as it stands, Carrick is not interested and will snub any approach from them.
It’s believed the midfielder is eyeing a move to the MLS to see out his career.
