Manchester United stalwart Michael Carrick is set for a one-year extension on his deal at Old Trafford, according to reports from BBC Sport.

The 35-year-old, who has made over 450 career appearances for the Red Devils, has seen his role dwindle somewhat this year, however it is clear he is still a favourite of Jose Mourinho’s, with the former Chelsea manager having heaped praise on him earlier this season.

The former Tottenham midfielder, who is set for a testimonial at Old Trafford come the end of this season, has won five Premier League titles, the Champions League, the FA Cup and three League Cups, amongst others, in his time at the club and could well add to that tally next week when Mourinho’s side face Ajax in the final of the Europa League.

The news of Carrick’s extension could well be a boost for teammate and captain Wayne Rooney, whose own future is up in the air this summer.
