Michael Carrick is to be offered a new contract at Manchester United that could see him see out the rest of his playing career at Old Trafford, according to the Metro.
The England international moved to Manchester in July 2006, and has since made over 300 appearances in all competitions, winning five league titles, the League Cup, Champions League and World Club Cup.
On an individual level, he was named the club’s Players’ Player of the Year last season, and featured in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year, while internationally he is in line to win his thirtieth cap for England in next Friday’s crucial World Cup Qualifier against Montenegro.
The proposed deal would see the 32 year become one of the best paid players in the United squad, and underline his importance to new manager David Moyes.
He has played every minute for the Champions in the league this season, and is 13/2 to get on the score-sheet in tomorrow’s trip to bottom of the table Sunderland.
