Carrick pens down new deal

Michael Carrick has agreed a new two-and-a-half year extension on his current  contract at Old Trafford, which will see him stay until 2016.

According to the Daily Mail, the England international, who has been ruled out with injury until the New Year, also has the option of a further year extension at the end of the contract.

However, the article suggests the new contract will not see Carrick’s £3.5million-a-year salary increase.

Carrick has started all 10 of his Premier League appearances this season having been an important part of the United midfield since joining from Tottenham in 2006.

His season has been severely hampered by an Achilles injury picked up last month, which was not helped by playing through the pain against Arsenal over a week ago.

The injury has forced the midfielder to miss both of England’s international friendlies at Wembley this month, including against rivals Germany on Tuesday night.
