Michael Carrick’s future at Manchester United is still up in the air, according to The Mirror.
The Mirror reports that the 34-year-old is out of contract in June and wants to stay at Old Trafford, but is yet to be offered an extension despite featuring regularly for Louis van Gaal this season.
After concerns over his fitness last term, Carrick has made 29 appearances for the Red Devils this campaign – second only to Morgan Schneiderlin’s 33 among United’s central midfielders.
The Mirror adds that Carrick’s consistent performances across the campaign, and his valuable experience, have put him in Roy Hodgson’s thoughts for England’s Euro 2016 squad this summer.
And yet there has been no effort from United to keep him. There would be plenty of suitors for an out-of-contact Carrick. The Mirror claims that there is interest from within the Premier League and China.
Carrick has made over 400 appearances for United since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006. He has won five Premier League titles, the 2009-10 League Cup and the 2007-08 Champions League.
