Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has ruled out playing for any other English club after he finally leaves the club.
The 35-year-old’s contract expires this summer and he is expected to hang up his boots after 11 years at the club which have seen him win five Premier League titles.
Geordie Carrick has long been linked with a switch to Newcastle for a last hurrah but he has now confirmed that United will be his last English club.
“No, I think that has passed now,” said Carrick in MOTD magazine when asked about the Newcastle rumours.
“When I was a kid I was supporting Newcastle, I dreamt one day I would do but I count myself very fortunate to have played for Manchester United for so long.
“It is just one of those things where you cannot have everything. If and when I finish at Manchester United, that will probably be it I think.
“I am not getting ahead of myself, I have been here for so long and I have enjoyed it, I will not be playing for another club in England that is for sure.
“We will see what happens, I have not really got any plans past this, I am just enjoying how it is at the minute.”
Fellaini has now started more league games this season than Mkhitaryan, Michael Carrick, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard
