Manchester United have fallen into a very bad patch since the departure of one Sir Alex Ferguson and are yet to taste silverware since that golden era.

Success just does not seem to come their way even in this season as Van Gaal in his second season in charge, is struggling to take the team to Champions League next season.

This will see the club enter into the summer transfer window into yet another transition with a number of players set to leave the club at the end of this season.

Long-term fan favorite and England national squad player Michael Carrick has recently admitted that his time at Old Trafford may come to an end along with this season.

The 34-year old moved to the Theatre of Dreams nine-and-a-half years ago and has won 5 Premier League titles and a number of other domestic titles in a stellar career with the club.

His deal was set to expire at the end of the last campaign but the club decided to extend his contract the other year keeping him at United this season.

Though it is expected that such a contract might still be agreed between the parties, the veteran admitted that there have not been any talks about a contract extension between the club and the player so far.

The former Spurs midfielder also admitted that though there were not talks, he hopes that it gets resolved before the end of the season.

‘I am not sure yet to be honest, no. I haven’t heard anything just at the moment. Hopefully (I will) sometime soon,’ said Carrick.

The 34-year old has missed parts of this season due to injury and has not been the solid presence in midfield Van Gaal wanted him to be this season. He has fallen down the pecking order and might not get enough game time for another season.

At 34, he still has a lot left to give to his club and country and he revealed that he does not want to rush into a decision and that he is ready to wait until the end of the season.

‘I am not making a big deal of it, to be honest. I will just have to wait and see what happens,” he added.

Toni Kroos is one of the biggest transfer targets for United this summer and if it goes through, with Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger already in the squad, Carrick might just not have an option but to leave the club.

However, there will be plenty of clubs in the Premier League who can use his experience not only on the field but also in the dressing room.

Where do you think Michael Carrick will play for the next season?
