Michael Carrick calm about Man United future
Michael Carrick is hoping to sign a new Manchester Unitded contract
Michael Carrick says he wants to stay at Manchester United beyond the end of the season.
The 33-year-old England international is set to become a free agent next summer as his current United contract comes to an end.
He has been great, and his staff. They have been really supportive from the first day
And Carrick, who is currently nursing a groin injury, can understand why the Red Devils are yet to open talks over a new deal.
“My contract is up at the end of the season. I want to stay, of course. I’ve got nowhere else to go.” Carrick is quoted as saying.
Carrick added: “They have not really, not yet. But I haven’t expected (that) to be honest, with the injury. It will probably around Christmas or after that.”
The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder added that new United manager Louis van Gaal has been very supportive after Carrick’s injury-hit start to the season.
“It was literally his first day in the office when I went for my operation, so that was shocking timing really,” continued Carrick.
“But he was great with me straight away, the boss. He has been great, and his staff. They have been really supportive from the first day and I have a lot to thank them for because he had a lot on his plate coming in.
“He took his time to make sure I was all right and getting on the right track.”
