Carrick’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season, so David Moyes appears keen to get him signed up for two-years as opposed to one. In recent years under Sir Alex Ferguson, we’ve seen that once players hit 30 they are offered one-year pacts if anything. Moyes is however making an exception for the 32-year-old, who plays an important yet under appreciated role in the current United team.
Speaking to Sky Sports over a month ago, Carrick said: “I’d love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club. It’s a fantastic club. I’ve had great times here.”
Meanwhile, Mark Ogden of the Telegraph, has reported on Carrick facing a lengthily spell on the sidelines due to an Achilles injury. The midfielder withdrew from the England squad on Tuesday along with Danny Welbeck.
