Manchester United fans seem to have mixed feelings here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear news that Michael Carrick wants to sign a new deal and end his career with the club according to the Daily Star.
According to come of our regulars, that is great news with Carrick boasting a level of composure and experience that some of their younger players are lacking.
However some of our other punters think that there are younger and better midfielders out there.
The former Tottenham midfielder spoke about his recent injury and potential new contract talks, claiming: “It will probably be around Christmas or after that. Of course I want to stay, I’ve got nowhere else to go!”
He also lavished praise on his new manager Louis van Gaal claiming that he has been nothing but supportive since talking over the top job at Old Trafford.
As our regulars note, it all still seems rosy in Carrick’s world and he will be itching to get back into the Red Devils’ first eleven to compete with Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.
