Mourinho set to tie down Champions League winner in first Man United deal

Manchester United are set to end any uncertainty over the future of Michael Carrick by offering the midfielder a new deal, according to the Daily Mirror.

The long serving midfielder has seen his future at Old Trafford cast into doubt after deliberations over an extension seemingly dragged on for months.

Despite being a mainstay in their midfield across the last decade, the 34-year old appeared to be caught in the managerial storm at the Theatre of Dreams.

The likes of West Ham United, Everton and Arsenal were all linked with him, though the arrival of Jose Mourinho appears to have helped come to a resolution.

Now, the England international is thought to be nearing an agreement to extend his stay by another year as the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ gears up to take charge.

Since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, Carrick has won every domestic cup as well as the Champions League with the Red Devils.
