Michael Carrick to sign new Manchester United contract

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has agreed a new contract at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mail.

Carrick joined Manchester United from Tottenham in 2006, and has made 334 appearances to date, scoring 21 goals in the process. 

According to the Mail, the 32-year-old will put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half year deal after thrashing out terms with Manchester United officials, and has an option of an additional 12 months that will take him past a decade at Old Trafford.

The paper reports that the new deal doesn't include a pay rise from his current £3.5 million wage packet, and should be announced by the end of the week.

The new contract means Carrick could end his career with Manchester United - something he admitted he would dearly love to do last month.

"I'd love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club," he said.

'It's a fantastic club and I've had great times here. I feel good at the moment. I've just turned 32, so I've got a bit of time yet.'

Carrick is currently out of action for up to six weeks with an Achilles injury.
