Manchester United Star To Make Huge Announcement This Week
Michael Carrick has revealed he will make a “big announcement” about his Manchester United future.
The midfielder is out of contract in the summer after signing a 12-month extension in the summer.
Pictures emerged of Carrick filming at Old Trafford amid speculation over his future, reports the Manchester Evening News.
But any imminent announcement is likely to be confirmation of a testimonial, rather than the news he will again be extending his time in Manchester.
The 35-year-old is in the middle of his 11th campaign at Old Trafford after signing from Tottenham in July 2006.
Carrick has enjoyed a hugely successful decade with United winning five Premier League titles, the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.
And reports emerged at the weekend that he was to be granted a testimonial for his service to the club.
In the first part of Carrick’s Instagram story, the midfielder wrote: ‘Filming today for a big announcement coming soon!!’
He also showcased his love for the club he has represented with such distinction, adding: “Such a privilege to play for Manchester United! Love everything about this club. Honoured to of played with some special players!”
The midfielder has featured heavily under Jose Mourinho, making 18 appearances since forcing his way back into the side in October, although he was an unused sub against Leicester and Watford after being withdrawn at half time in the Premier League meeting with Hull City.
Mourinho has spoken highly of Carrick’s talents, but has bemoaned the fact that he has only had the chance to manage him in the twlight of his professional playing career.
peaking earlier this month, the United boss said:“Let’s be honest. I have seen many positives in Carrick. But I cannot go to his identity card and delete five years.
“Michael is not 30.”
Carrick is closing in on 450 appearances for the Reds in all competitions and has admitted he is taking his coaching badges.
