Carrick ready to retire if no new Man United deal is offered

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is prepared to retire if he doesn’t get offered a new deal at Old Trafford, he told the BBC.

The 35-year-old has spent 11 years at United since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 but sees his current deal expire in June and, so far, there has been no fresh offers from the Red Devils forthcoming.

With his future up in the air, Carrick has stated he would not move to another English side and would consider retirement altogether. Speaking to the BBC, he said:

“I just can’t picture myself playing for anyone else – certainly any other club in England.”

When asked if he would consider retiring, he added:

“I probably would say so, yes. I think so. I couldn’t say definitely but pretty much.”

Carrick currently stands as the second-longest serving player at Manchester United, after Wayne Rooney, and has accumulated over 400 appearances for the Red Devils- winning five Premier League’s, three EFL Cup’s, an FA Cup and the Champions League in 2008.
