The Daily Mail has created a huge buzz here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that Michael Carrick is set to be handed a new one-year deal.
The midfielder has impressed this season, becoming a key part of Louis van Gaal’s side and has literally played his way towards a new contract.
As one of our punters notes, Carrick has become vital this season and despite being hampered with injury, has become one of the first names on the teamsheet when fit – and ironically, has become even more valued during his time out.
While our punters note that speaks volumes about the club and their current status, it is a glowing assessment of Carrick and his importance at Old Trafford – and really makes the idea of a new deal a no brainer.
Carrick is currently on £130,000 per week and will welcome the chance to extend his stay at the club with the possibility of a further year.
