Jose Mourinho has given a hint that Michael Carrick could sign a new contract. The veteran midfielder signed a one-year extension at the start of this season.
Carrick is having his 10th season in a United shirt after signing from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006. The midfielder was brilliant against Arsenal as he thwarted the opponent’s attack and let Paul Pogba roam all around the field.
There have been rumours regarding his future after Mourinho didn’t include him in the last couple of games. But he started the last two Premier League games against Swansea and the Gunners.
Mourinho said, “Michael is 35 years old.
“It is very sad to know that time flies for every one of us. He is such a fantastic player and it is a pity, I always loved him, but instead of being his manager when he was 25 I am his manager when he is 35.
“We have a good understanding. We know when he can play. We know when he is ready and when he needs a rest. I am still having Michael Carrick and probably for one more season.”
