Cape Town - Michael Carrick has signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United, according to club legend Paddy Crerand.
The 34-year-old was thought to have played his final game for the Red Devils in their FA Cup triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley, but he seems to be in new manager Jose Mourinho's plans.
Although there has been no official confirmation by the club, Crerand, who made over 300 appearances for United, revealed the news on MUTV on Monday night.
"Something that happened today that nobody has mentioned, and I'm delighted that he has signed another contract: Michael Carrick. He's signed a contract for another year," the former Scotland international said.
"There was a situation where it looked as if his contract was up at the end of this year and that was it, but from what I'm gathering he's there for another year."
"While the veteran midfielder's future is not yet official, the club did confirm that youngsters Marcus Rashford and Cameron Northwick-Jackson signed new deals on Monday.
