Midfielder, who could replace Oxlade-Chamberlain in England’s World Cup party, looks in relaxed mood as he soaks up the sun with his lovely blonde partner.
Manchester United star Michael Carrick is currently holidaying with his wife in Ibiza.
The 32-year-old was omitted from England’s 23-man World Cup squad earlier this summer.
However, he is on a standby list and could go to Brazil 2014 if Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fails to recover from the injury that forced him off during Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Ecuador.
Carrick seems pretty relaxed about the whole situation, if the below picture is anything to go by.
The image, which shows a topless Carrick chilling on a beach with wife Lisa, was presumably snapped by a paparazzi.
After the media got their hands on it, Carrick reposted it on his Instagram account, along with the message: “Yu just never know who’s watching…. Nice quiet day at the beach. #CarryingTimber”
