BBC Sport is reporting that veteran midfielder Michael Carrick is expected to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

The long-serving midfielder was widely expected to quit Manchester United after 11 years, and his 4th June testimonial should have been his final game for the club.

However, latest reports suggest that both the player and the club are eager for the cooperation to continue and chances are Carrick will soon sign a new one-year deal with the Red Devils.

Despite his relatively low profile, the midfielder has been one of club’s most influential players in the last ten years, and he still appears capable of performing at a high level.

After starting the current season as a mere back-up option, Carrick managed to persuade manager Jose Mourinho that he deserves a starting berth and went on to make 21 Premier League appearances.

Many eyebrows had been raised when Sir Alex Ferguson splashed out £18.6 million on Carrick back in 2006, but that proved to be one of the best deals in club’s recent history.
