News that Michael Carrick will not be offered a new contract and is likely to be leaving Old Trafford in the summer has alerted Harry Redknapp who would be keen to bring the England international to White Hart Lane this month and is readying an offer to bring the former Tottenham man back to the club.
It has been widely reported that Sir Alex Ferguson will look to freshen up his squad this summer and a number of Manchester United players are apparently heading for the exit and 29 year old Carrick is apparently one of those set to be offloaded and this has led to much speculation that he has been targeted by a number of Premier League sides who are keen to sign the vastly experienced midfielder.
Harry Redknapp has spoken at length about his plans to bring in further central midfield options and having worked with Carrick at West Ham is planning to team up with the Wallsend born star. Valued at around £8m the talented Man United man will have only a year left on his contract come the summer and may well be tempted by a move back to his old stamping ground to team up with the manager who helped make him what he is.
Carrick suffered a minor injury during United’s 5-0 win over Birmingham City and may be a player that Ferguson wants to keep around this season and therefore a deal may be more likely come the summer when the Scottish boss starts his much anticipated rebuilding process that could see some of the older heads in the squad leave Old Trafford.
