The deal, which includes an option to extend the deal by a further year, recognises Carrick's status as one of the central components of David Moyes' revolution and will extend the midfielder's stay at Old Trafford to a full decade.

Carrick told the club's official Twitter account: "It's great to extend my contract at this club. I'm really enjoying my football. I've won many trophies and look forward to more."

Now 32, Carrick joined United for £18million from Tottenham in 2006, since when he has won five Premier League titles, a Champions League crown and the League Cup.

Carrick is currently sidelined with an Achilles injury he aggravated in the Premier League win over Arsenal earlier this month.

However, the former West Ham man has already done enough to convince Moyes he is worthy of a place in his squad.

Moyes said: "I am delighted Michael has extended his contract. During my short time at the club it hasn't been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability. He is an exceptional man and a true professional and it's great that he has committed himself to the club."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
