Man United stalwart anxiously awaits decision on future amid manager uncertainty


The ongoing managerial position at Manchester United has had fans dizzy (though that may have something to do with Happy Hour) over whether or not Jose Mourinho or Louis van Gaal will be in charge next season.

Now, according to the Sun, it appears that is not something that affects just the Red Devils as Michael Carrick anxiously awaits clarity over his future.

It is claimed that while the Manchester giants do wish to offer the vastly experienced 34-year old a new deal, they will have to wait and see just who will be in charge next season.

The England international is believed to want to remain at Old Trafford, despite links with a lucrative move to China, as well as switches to Everton and former club West Ham United.

They suggest he has been told by a member of staff that a new deal could well be on the cards, though it is unclear just who will be in charge.

Mourinho has been widely tipped to takeover this summer, though there is undoubtedly a school of thought that under fire boss Louis van Gaal will see out his final year despite a relatively awful second season in charge.

It will a decade this summer that Carrick arrived from Tottenham Hotspur under Sir Alex Ferguson and he has been a key part of the club’s success ever since.

Until recently that is.

Should United be treating Carrick with a bit more respect? Is he a Mourinho type player?
