Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is reportedly considering a move abroad amid fears he will not be offered a new deal at Old Trafford. The 34-year-old midfielder's contract expires in the summer and he is yet to open talks about a new deal.
Carrick, who joined United in 2006, is reportedly considering moving overseas in the event of the club failing to offer him a fresh contract, according to ESPN. The England international has struggled to hold down a first-team place since the arrivals of Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
United's delay in offering him a new deal has apparently alerted a number of Premier League clubs to his availability. Carrick will be able to move for free at the end of the current campaign and a number of clubs are said to be actively monitoring the situation.
However, Carrick is also open to the idea of playing overseas, with clubs from the MLS and the Middle East rumoured to be interested in his services.
Carrick is currently one of United's longest-serving players and has enjoyed a trophy-laden period with the club, including five Premier League titles and one Champions League. But with uncertainty hanging over manager Louis van Gaal's future, it is unclear if United will offer him a new contract.
