Michael Carrick and his wife were pictured enjoying their holiday pending his return to action for the Red Devils in the pre season tour with Jose Mourinho at the helms.

Before Louis van Gaal was sacked at the club, he called Michael Carrick aside and told the player to make plans outside the club as he had no future at Old Trafford. He appreciated the player for his services but said he had to be honest. Well, teh manger was the one that had to leave.

Carrick has won everything with the club and has the respect of his team mates, the staff and the fans so the new coach Mourinho probably considered this before extending the deal with the player. The Dutchman let Javier Hernandez go in similar fashion when all he needed was just to boost their confidence. Chicharito, as he is fondly called, became an instant hit in Germany, scoring goals for Bayern Leverkusen while the strikers at Old Trafford struggled to get any. Others include Daniel Welbeck, Patrice Evra, Tom Cleverley and Jonny Evans. The replacements for the players were poor and the change in tactics was not yielding results. .

Carrick will now play his eleventh season at the club, being one of the oldest players in the team. Old Trafford has been where he’s called home since joining from White Hart Lane. Ryan Giggs whose contract as assistant manager expired in June rejected the offer of Mourinho to remain at the club as he needed someone with real knowledge. Giggs decided he was done playing back up and wants his own managerial position.

Carrick and his wife were pictured enjoying their summer hopping from one island to another, first at Ibiza, then to Formentera and then Barbados all within the past two weeks. At Sandy Lane, they were pictured enjoying a swim and the sun, aside enjoying paddleboarding. The player is set to rejoin his mates as they begin life in the new season, with a lot of competition and changes.
