It seems as if the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are already feeling the effects of having Jose Mourinho as their manager.
While the Red Devils propping up the bar have become so accustomed to missing out on top targets and seeing transfer sagas drag out, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has seemingly already sorted out a long running issue.
According to the Sun, the Portuguese has assured Michael Carrick of his future at Old Trafford by personally speaking to the 34-year old on the phone.
However, he is believed to have been assured of his playing time next season as he prepares to sign a contract extension upon returning from his holidays next month.
Across his decade at the Theatre of Dreams, the former Spurs and West Ham pass master has hauled in an impressive five Premier League winning medals, as well as both domestic cup competitions and the Champions League.
How vital will Carrick be next season for Man United?
