Michael Carrick set for Manchester United contract extension

Manchester United are set to offer Michael Carrick a one-year contract extension, according to the Daily Mail. The 33-year old, currently on a £130,000-a-week contract, is set to sign a new deal keeping him at the club until the summer of 2016.

The England midfielder has been in sensational form since his return from injury, playing in the middle of the park as well as at the heart of defence on occasion.

His experience has proved vital to Louis van Gaal, and its great to see that the experienced midfielder is showing no signs of letting up despite being missing for a substantial amount of time due to injury.

There is nobody better at picking the right passes at the right time than Michael Carrick, and with good runs being made by the likes of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao, it certainly helps the Wallsend-born midfielder out.

Is Carrick worthy of a new deal? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
