Michael Carrick is close to signing a new contract at Manchester United, with an announcement expected soon from the club. The midfielder, whose current deal expires next summer, is nursing an achilles problem that has ruled him out of England's friendlies against Chile on Friday and Germany on Tuesday. Carrick, at 32, is hopeful of signing a two-year contract. Although United typically offer only one-year deals to players in their 30s, it is understood that David Moyes is minded to sanction the length of term the player wants, given his fitness record and consistent performances as the senior central midfielder. Last month Carrick signalled he wanted to commit his future to the club. "I'd love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club," he said. "It's a fantastic club and I've had great times here. I feel good at the moment. I've just turned 32, so I've got a bit of time yet."
