England international Michael Carrick admits he could retire this summer if he fails to sign a new contract at Manchester United, according to BBC Sport.
The 35-year-old, who has 34 international caps for the Three Lions, though he hasn’t played for England since November 2015, has scored one goal and provided one assist in 22 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League club so far this season.
Carrick, who arrived at Old Trafford back in July 2006 from top-flight rivals Tottenham Hotspur, has won five Premier League titles, two League Cups, the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup, among other pieces of silverware, during his time with The Red Devils.
However, the central midfielder’s current one-year deal expires at the end of June, with no news of the club offering Carrick an extension.
When asked if he would hang up his boots if United failed to offer him a new deal, Carrick said, “I probably would say so, yes.
“I think so. I couldn’t say definitely but pretty much.”
The England star has already been awarded a testimonial at Old Trafford in June.
