Aussie outfit launch shock transfer approach for Man United maestro

According to reports from FourFourTwo, Perth Glory have approached Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick regarding a shock move down under.

The England international has lifted five Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League title during his 416 appearances for the Red Devils and currently serves as Wayne Rooney’s vice-captain.

But with his contract yet to be renewed beyond the end of the season, the veteran playmaker’s ten-year Old Trafford career looks set to come to an end during the summer transfer window.

According to reports from February, Premier League rivals Arsenal and now-relegated outfit Newcastle United are interested in signing the 34-year-old on a free transfer.

But FourFourTwo claim Perth Glory have offered Carrick an alternative destination for his twilight years – the Australian A-League.

Captain Richard Garcia played with the defensive midfielder during his West Ham days and reportedly proposed the move as a change in lifestyle for Carrick.

Furthermore, Football Federation Australia have already given the potential transfer their approval or a subsidy under the new marquee acquisition scheme.
