Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick could quit Old Trafford at the end of the season. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the midfielder will listen to offers before making a decision over his future in the game.

Carrick, 34, has long been considered one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, but he is approaching the final couple of years of his fine career.

The former Tottenham man is set to run out of his current contract at Old Trafford in five months time, so he is currently free to sign a pre-contract with a club abroad. 

United fans certainly won't want to lose him, however; Carrick is still arguably the best midfielder at the club. Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal may well have brought the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin to Old Trafford in the summer, but Carrick is still a key man. 

Class of Carrick 

His range of passing and tactical nous certainly help United control games and move further up the field. Without him, Van Gaal's team aren't quite the same side. 

Carrick's return to the pitch against Derby County during United's 3-1 win in the FA Cup on Friday night should hand the club a timely boost ahead of the final stages of the season. 

The Red Devils still have everything to play for at this stage. United may well be out of the Champions League, but they can still succeed in both the Europa League and FA Cup. There is also the small issue of securing a place in the Premier League's top four. 

Should Carrick stay at United for another year? Have your say below!
