Michael Carrick has been performing for Manchester United since 2006 after having completed his move from Tottenham Hotspur over to Old Trafford.

The transfer fee of the English midfielder was confirmed to be £14 million and from there on out, Carrick went to make over 280 appearances for the Premier League outfit and he has been able to secure major European titles including: Premier League and the UEFA Champions League, just to name a few of the more renowned and prestigious titles in the world of football.

The 35 year old English midfielder has consistently been able to make over 25 appearances in almost every single season with Manchester United but the arrival of Jose Mourinho has seen Michael Carrick being dropped to the sidelines and he has recently stated that this might be his last or one of his last seasons in Old Trafford.

‘’There's always a chance of that isn't there?’ I’m 35 now and need to be realistic.It is such a great club with great players, you can't take it for granted and thankfully I'm here this season and playing my part.Hopefully I can play more of a part in the months ahead, strive for success and try to get some sort of silverware’’ Michael Carrick said as he talked about his current situation in Old Trafford and about his near future.

The contract of Michael Carrick expires on June of 2017 and he is uncertain as to what will happen when this time approaches. Michael Carrick is currently earning his coaching badges and he is currently an FA Regional Coach Mentor for North East & Yorkshire and has also spent time coaching Team Northumbria F.C.

Even when Michael Carrick does decide to hang up his playing boots, the Englishman still wants to remain being involved in the world of football and this is why he has opted to start earning his coaching badges.
