Michael Carrick is on the brink of signing a new deal with Manchester United.

The Daily Star says it's now thought the 32-year-old is close to signing a new two-year deal which will prolong his stay with United past the current season, when his current deal expires.

The new deal will see the former Tottenham ace stay with the club until the summer of 2016.
