The Express understands that Michael Carrick has turned down a lucrative offer from the Chinese Super League in order to stay at Manchester United.
The thirty-four year old is set to be out of contract in the summer but is hoping to extend his Old Trafford stay for a further twelve months.
The neavau-riche Asian league has already splashed out big money to land the likes of Ramires from Chelsea and Jackson Martinez from Atletico Madrid, and further deals are expected to be completed in the coming months.
Carrick moved to Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006 and has so far racked up over four hundred appearances for the club, scoring twenty-three goals and winning a whole host of major honours.
Internationally, he has been capped thirty-four times for his country and was part of the squads that attended both the 2006 and 2010 World Cup finals.
