The Mail Online understands that Michael Carrick is set to join the coaching staff at Manchester United after announcing that he will retire from playing at the end of the season.
The thirty-six year old has barely featured for the Red Devils this season, making just four appearances while he had a minor operation to treat an irregular heartbeat in October.
Carrick has played over seven hundred senior games at club level across spells with West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United with the majority of those outings coming for the latter. He also had loan stints with Swindon Town and Birmingham City early in his career.
During his time at Old Trafford he has won a whole host of major honours including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League while in 2013 he was named the club’s Player of the Season.
Internationally, he represented England thirty-four times and was part of the squads for the World Cup finals in both 2006 and 2010.
