It seems that Michael Carrick is set to remain at Manchester United for next season.
The 35-year-old midfielder is coming to the end of his 11th season at the club and has a testimonial on 4 June.
Contract talks have progressed well, and confidence has been expressed on both sides that a one-year extension to his existing deal, which expires on 30 June, will reach a positive conclusion.
Carrick joined United from Tottenham in an £18.6m deal in 2006.
He has made 457 appearances in all competitions, putting him 17th on United's all-time list, and scored 24 goals.
