Michael Carrick closing in on new contract - reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is close to agreeing a new two-year deal, according to talkSPORT.

The Red Devils are said to be desperate to tie Carrick down to a new contract, as his current deal runs out next summer.

Carrick has been an integral member of Manchester United's squad for the last couple of years, with his importance to the Premier League champions rising since Paul Scholes' retirement last summer.

The 32-year-old has played in 17 of Manchester United's 18 matches so far this season, as the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Anderson have struggled to impress Moyes.

Carrick, who moved to Manchester United for £18.6million in 2006, has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League since arriving at Old Trafford.

Moyes and Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward must now turn their attention to offering new deals to the likes of Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic - who are also out of contract in the summer.
