Michael Carrick insists he will not play football at another English club once he’s done at Manchester United.
He’s approaching the final months on his deal at Old Trafford and although reports claim he could be in talks over a new contract, Carrick could still be up for grabs this summer.
Jose Mourinho has previously stated his love for Carrick, claiming he could have easily been able to cement his place in the side if he wasn’t in the latter stages of his career.
Speaking about the situation, Carrick claims nothing has been finalised yet.
“No, I think that’s passed now,” he said.
“When I was a kid I was supporting Newcastle, I dreamt one day I would do but I count myself very fortunate to have played for Manchester United for so long.
“It’s just one of those things where you can’t have everything.
“If and when I finish here, that will probably be it I think.
“I’m not getting ahead of myself, I’ve been here for so long and I’ve enjoyed it, I won’t be playing for another club in England that’s for sure.
“We’ll see what happens, I haven’t really got any plans past this, I’m just enjoying how it is at the minute and just preparing for my testimonial.”
He’s played a vital role in settling Paul Pogba in midfield this season and it seems fans may have realised what he truly has to offer just too late.
Carrick hasn’t been able to keep up with the consistency of his performances, but when he’s completely fit, he’s showcased exactly why he’s been in the side for so long.
