Manchester United icon Michael Carrick is ready to put pen to paper on a new deal to keep him at the club for a further season, according to reports from The Sun.

The former Tottenham man, who has spent eleven years at Old Trafford, has often gone under the radar during his career, but is being rewarded for his fantastic form in a United shirt with a Testimonial and a new one-year extension.

Manager Jose Mourinho made it clear earlier in the season that he was keen for Carrick to sign an extension, having been pivotal to settling the side during a poor run earlier in the campaign.

The 35-year-old will play in a testimonial for the Michael Carrick Foundation in June, where a Manchester United 2008 XI will take on a side comprised of some of the best players he has ever faced.

Since making the move to Manchester from London in 2006, the midfielder has won five league titles, an FA Cup, three League Cups and the Champions League.
