United will play their final game of the season this weekend when they take on Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final.

Aside from the Gunners, a host of sides, including Everton, West Ham United, and Newcastle United are all said to be keeping an eye on his situation ahead of possible moves this summer.

The Red Devils are expected to add another midfielder to their squad as they look to sign a replacement to Carrick, especially with summer signing Bastian Schweinsteiger having struggled with fitness issues.

The ex-Spurs man has featured 41 times in all competitions for his side this term, managing to provide one assist in the process.
