Premier League midfielder is shock target for Chinese clubs

Manchester United v Manchester City - Barclays Premier LeagueThe landlord here in the Transfer Tavern has been getting earache from the owner of the Chinese restaurant which sits next door to the Tavern, about just how good football over in his native homeland is becoming.

Several top players have transferred over to the Far East in recent weeks and more are set to follow as the beautiful game takes China by storm.

One Arsenal fan is sat with a pint here in the Tavern and notices an article in the Daily Express which suggest Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is the next player being lined up for a move over to play in China.

The ex-Spurs midfielder is also wanted by the Gunners and Newcastle United but a lucrative pay packet from the Far East could yet see the holding midfielder wave goodbye to the Premier League.

The Arsenal fan who found the article has now moved to the smoking area and he believes that at 34-years-old, few would begrudge Carrick one final payday over in China, but would welcome the midfielder at the Emirates Stadium.

Manchester United fans… Would you give Carrick a new deal at Old Trafford? Can he still do a job in the Premier League?
