Michael Carrick signs Manchester United contract extension

Michael Carrick has signed a new one-year contract extension with Manchester United, the club have confirmed.

The 34-year-old was out of contract this summer but Jose Mourinho has decided to keep Carrick at Man United for at least one more year.

Having been at United since 2006, Carrick is one of the veteran’s in a relatively inexperienced squad and Jose Mourinho clearly felt it was necessary to keep that sort of experience in the team.

While Carrick’s fitness was in question last year, as were some of his performances to be fair, he was still arguably United’s best midfielder last season. So long as the team is set up correctly, there is still plenty he can offer to United and that’s been rewarded with a new contract.

I did think that maybe winning the FA Cup was a perfect send-off for Carrick but Mourinho had other plans and he’ll be here until the end of the 2016/17 season at least. Congratulations to Michael.
