Michael Carrick Set to Retire if No New Contract

Michael Carrick appears to be coming to the end of a quite illustrious footballing career. Reports on BBC are stating that he would “probably” retire if he doesn’t get a new contract in the summer with Manchester United.

He’s a strange case for me. I thought he was way over valued when he signed for United from Spurs 11 years ago for £18 million. Many pundits and fans alike raved about him though and the value and strength that he brings to the team.

I can see why he wouldn’t want to play for anyone else after United, maybe he will get another year. Or maybe he’ll retire while he is still on top of his game?

I think Manchester United and their current squad will miss him though. What do you think?
