Michael Carrick has said he would “probably” retire if he is not offered a new contract by Manchester United in the summer.
The 35-year-old has been at Old Trafford since joining from Tottenham in July 2006 and his current one-year deal expires at the end of June.
The England international has now been awarded a testimonial at Old Trafford.
Carrick, who has made 22 appearances for United this season, told BBC that”I just can’t picture myself playing for anyone else – certainly any other club in England.
He is the second-longest serving player at Old Trafford after captain Wayne Rooney and has made over 400 appearances for the Red Devils, winning five Premier League titles, the Champions League in 2008, the FA Cup in 2016 and three EFL Cups.
Asked if he would retire if he were not offered a contract extension, he added: “I probably would say so, yes. I think so. I couldn’t say definitely but pretty much.”
