Manchester United star Michael Carrick has rejected a whooping £6million contract offer from a Chinese club even though he hasn’t been favored in the current Man U line up with Louis Van Gaal in charge.
His decision to remain at the Old Trafford for yet another season comes with expectations that Jose Mourinho (the in-coming manager) may offer him more playing time.
The Chinese Super League is bubbling with world class players from almost every continent.
With the Chinese government pursuing a revival in sports development – especially in football – it will not be a surprise to see Messi or Ronaldo make a decision to play in China someday.
Chinese billionaires has also gained government’s support on investments in sports. Wanda and Alibaba are few examples of companies with huge marketing interest in the round leather game.
According to a Manchester legend Gary Neville, the current squad’s defence lacks consistency and control. The former defender believes Michael Adrian Carrick brings some peace to United’s midfield.
In Gary Neville’s opinion, the Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick ‘is a piano’.
Michael Carrick is a famous footballer of British descent. He is remembered for his successful contributions in Manchester United and England’s national team. He was born on July 28, 1981 in the quiet town of Wallsend in Tyne and Wear, England.
