Carrick future unclear

Michael Carrick says he will strongly consider retiring

Michael Carrick says he will strongly consider retiring if his Manchester United contract is not extended this summer.

The 35-year-old has been granted a testimonial by the club and says he doesn’t “think there’s many places I’d want to play, if any, after this”.

The midfielder’s contract expires in the summer and, while remains a key contributor at United, Carrick says there have been no talks yet about a new deal.
Asked if he had discussed the matter with United boss Jose Mourinho, Carrick said: “I haven’t really had that much of a conversation with him at the moment.

“Obviously that will happen. It’s going to happen at some stage, pretty soon I’d have thought. That’s something I’m really relaxed about. I’m sure he is as well.”
