The Red Devils have actually broken with their usual club-wide policy of only offering players in their thirties one-year extensions by handing Carrick a new two-year deal.

However, it is understood that new Red Devils head coach David Moyes is so desperate to keep the holding midfield player at the Theatre of Dreams, that he and chief executive Ed Woodward were both prepared to make an exception for the England international on this occasion.

Carrick is currently out injured after damaging his achilles’ tendon recently, with the 32-year-old not expected back in action much before Christmas, although that setback is not thought likely to delay negotiations over the new contract.

In fact, it is expected that the Premier League giants will announce Carrick’s two-year deal before the weekend, with the player expected to be paid £100,000 per week, which will work out as £10 million across the length of the contract.

Either way, both parties now appear to happy with the terms on offer and Carrick can now extend his stay in the north west beyond the end of this current campaign.
