However, it remains to be seen - how the Englishman will fit into Mourinho’s plans for the coming season, but his 10-year of experience could prove vital to a young squad.
The reaction of Carrick’s contract extension was quite positive from a selection of United fans on social media…
Michael Carrick extending his contract for another year. Good player to have around the dressing room, but shouldn't be starting every week.

Carrick s contract extension should have never happened

Didn't expect Carrick to have signed another contract. He should have headed to MLS or China. #PassedIt imo
