Report: Manchester United midfielder rules out January exit

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has no thoughts of leaving Old Trafford despite the speculation surrounding his future at the club.

The 36-year-old has been recently linked with a January exit from United with the likes of Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa vying for his signature.

However, according to ESPN, the veteran has no plans of ending his association with United, and he is prepared to honour the remainder of his contract.

Carrick signed a one-year extension towards the end of May, and he has since been rewarded with a testimonial after serving United for more than a decade.

The experienced midfielder has managed just a single appearance in the League Cup this term, with a mystery illness sidelining him for the best part of six weeks.

Carrick has recently returned to first-team training, and he is a probable candidate to make the substitutes’ bench when United take on Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Manchester United are currently short in the midfield department with both Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini injured, but the pair are likely to make their comebacks shortly after the international break.
