Done Deal: Manchester United star signs contract extension

MICHAEL CARRICK has signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United.

The veteran midfielder's future was uncertain going into the summer as his current deal was winding down.

But evidently Jose Mourinho wants to keep the 35-year-old around for at least another season.

He made 23 league appearances this campaign, despite being relegated to the bench for the start of the season.

His return to the starting XI saw United start their massive 25-game unbeaten run in the league.

"What a fantastic way to finish off the season, with a new trophy in our cabinet," he said after signing the new deal. "I am delighted that my journey with this great club is going to continue."

Carrick has been with United since signing from Tottenham in 2006, and he's been given a testimonial by the club on June 4.
