Man United’s Michael Carrick eyes new Red Devils deal
Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says he would like to extend his Red Devils contract
Michael Carrick says he would like to extend his Manchester United contract.
The 32-year-old midfielder’s current Red Devils deal expires at the end of the season.
Carrick was named United’s player of the season in May after a dominant campaign at the heart of their midfield.
And the England international feels he still has plenty to offer the reigning Premier League champions.
“I’d love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club. It’s a fantastic club, I’ve had great times here,” said Carrick.
“I feel good at the moment. I’ve just turned 32 so I’ve got a bit of time yet.”
United have made a difficult start to the defence of their league crown after losing three of their six top-flight games this term.
However, Carrick urged the Red Devils to show character and bounce back in the coming weeks.
“You have periods, whether it is through seasons or through years when things don’t quite go right,” he said.
“You just have to face it and find a way to get through it.
“You can’t hide and go under. You have to respond. That is what we will do.”
He added: “Sometimes it is hard to put your finger on things.
“There are probably a number of reasons. If you don’t do enough things well in a game, then you lose it.
“I think we just get back to doing the right things, doing what we believe in. If we do that, in time we will be fine.”
