Jose Mourinho ready to offer midfielder one-year Manchester United deal

Carrick is set to stay at least one more year at Old Trafford
Carrick arrived at United in 2006 from Tottenham in an £18million switch which at the time made him the club’s sixth most expensive signing of all time.

The 34-year-old has been a crucial member of the United side since, racking up 421 appearances in all competitions.

But the England international’s contract is due to expire this month and with Louis van Gaal’s future uncertain his own departure from the club had been expected.

However, Jose Mourinho replaced the Dutchman as boss at Old Trafford last month and according to Goal, drawing up a new contract for Carrick was one of his first priorities.

And he will now reportedly be given a one-year extension on his £80,000-a-week deal with wages said to be at a similar level.
If Carrick does agree a new deal with United it will end interest from across the globe that had materialised as his availability emerged.

Arsenal were made favourites to sign him as they plan an overhaul of their midfield with Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini.
But Australian side Perth Glory were also said to be in the mix for Carrick.

However, United reportedly now have a contract ready to offer the former West Ham star.
