Man United transfer news: Mourinho confirms Carrick exit, £40m Real Madrid man to sign next summer and more


Carrick too old to get a contract extension

Jose Mourinho has sensationally come out claiming that Michael Carrick is now too old to get a contract extension at Manchester United.

Mourinho claims that at the age of 35, it is very hard for the club to offer the Englishman a new contract, which looked a certainty a few weeks ago.

Carrick said: “Let’s be honest,” Mourinho said. “I have seen many positives in Carrick. But I cannot go to his identity card and delete five years. Michael is not 30.”

Marco Asensio a target for Man United

According to the reports from Daily Star, Manchester United are set to rival Chelsea and Arsenal for the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio.

Despite a bright start to his Bernabeu career, Real Madrid are ready to cash-in on their midfielder with United most interested in his signing. The stylish midfielder is valued at £40m.

This is how much Lindelof will cost United

After missing out on Victor Lindelof last summer, Manchester United are keen to go back for the Benfica’s central defender, however, the Red Devils will need now pay as much as £50million for the Swedish defender.
