Michael Carrick will be a Manchester United player for another season after putting pen to paper on a one-year contract.
There were doubts about the 34-year-old’s future under new manager Jose Mourinho, and he was even linked with a move to A-League side Perth Glory.
However, Carrick will grace the pitch at Old Trafford during the 2016/17 season and look to add to the five Premier League titles won since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006.
This great club has been a part of my life for the past 10 years, so I am delighted that this incredible journey is continuing. It’s great to have the opportunity to work under José Mourinho, who has achieved so much during his managerial career.
I would like to thank the fans for their unwavering support. Winning the FA Cup was a special moment and, hopefully, we can go on to win more trophies in the future.
– Michael Carrick
Carrick was part of the United side that claimed the FA Cup at Wembley last month, beating Crystal Palace 2-1 in the final.
Can’t wait to get back to work..
1 more year for this great club and hopefully more of this !!! pic.twitter.com/RQQ1U0K2OZ
