Carrick signs new deal - Crerand


Michael Carrick has signed a new contract with Manchester United, according to Paddy Crerand.

Carrick's contract is due to expire at the end of June and the midfielder had been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

However, new manager Jose Mourinho is keen for the 34-year-old to remain at the club and Crerand appears to have revealed that Carrick has agreed fresh terms with United.

Speaking on MUTV, the former United player said: "Something that happened today that nobody has mentioned, and I'm delighted that he has signed another contract: Michael Carrick. He's signed a contract for another year.

"There was a situation where it looked as if his contract was up at the end of this year and that was it, but from what I'm gathering he's there for another year."

Crerand's comments came on the same day that Marcus Rashford and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson both signed new deals, which will tie them to the club until at least 2020.

Meanwhile, Mourinho toured United's Carrington training complex on Monday, just three days after being confirmed as the club's new manager.

He was greeted by executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward before being shown around the grounds and introduced to a number of staff members.
