Manchester United

Carrick offered MLS chance

9th November 2017, 10:42 by Bobbie Jackson

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has reportedly been offered the chance to prolong his career in Major League Soccer.

The Manchester United skipper recently returned to training after being struck down by a leg problem and a mystery virus, which saw him absent from Carrington for three weeks.

Carrick was ready to hang up his boots in the summer before the Red Devils handed the veteran midfielder a 12-month deal, although the 36-year-old is frustrated at only having since featured for Jose Mourinho's side in September's League Cup stroll over Burton Albion.

West Bromwich Albion are understood to be keen on taking the former England international on loan in January but sources close to the player insist the plan is still to see out the entire season at Old Trafford.

And they have also revealed his camp have been sounded out by teams in the United States about his possible career plans and whether he would be up for the challenge of playing his football across the pond.

A major consideration for Carrick is his young family, coupled with his desire to carry on playing, although stateside representatives believe those obstacles can be overcome and the switch would represent an exciting and lucrative challenge for him in the twilight of his career.
