Carrick has signed new Man Utd deal - Perth Glory chief

Perth Glory CEO Peter Filopoulos has declared Michael Carrick is staying with Manchester United.

Carrick current contract runs out in the summer and had been linked with a move to the Australian club due to his close relationship with captain Richard Garcia, who was best man at Carrick's wedding.

“It was a long shot opportunity due to Richard Garcia's relationship with Michael," Filopoulos told FourFourTwo.

“Perth was an option for Michael Carrick as he was going through what he was going to do in his career had he not landed a new signature with Manchester United.

“We understand he's now secured an extension with Manchester United so that's off the table."
