According to Bleacher Report via the Daily Star, Carrick would be willing to return to the club for another year if the Dutch manager is sacked – regardless of whether Jose Mourinho is the man chosen to replace him or not. Per the source, Carrick has “endured a difficult relationship” with Van Gaal during the former Netherlands manager’s two-year stint with Man United.
Despite his age – he’ll be 35 before the start of the 2016-17 campaign – Carrick was still a very useful veteran player to the Red Devils this season, making 29 starts at midfield this past season.
Bleacher Report noted that a trio of Premier League clubs – Everton, West Ham and Stoke City – have all expressed interest in signing Carrick.
Carrick has played his last ten seasons at Man United since joining the club on a £14 million transfer deal from Tottenham Hotspur.
