Manchester Utd Back In For Carrick?

The Sun have a story today claiming that Manchester United have increased their bid for Tottenham Hotspur and England international Michael Carrick to 14.2million.

Carrick has just two years left on his current White Hart Lane deal and reports suggest talks of improved terms have been stalled by the player.

Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to strengthen the squad for the 2006/07 Premiership campaign and is still looking for a tough holding midfielder to replace Roy Keane. Lets face it, Eric Djemba-Djemba didn't exactly measure up but it seems that Ferguson thinks Michael Carrick could.

Martin Jol was recently quoted as dismissing the links: 'We do not want to lose a player like Michael Carrick. He was probably our best midfield player this season, so why should we sell him? ....Michael has got a contract for another two years, so that is the situation. He owes this club and he is happy here.'

There has, quite rightly, been no comment from the player himself as he is concentrating on World Cup duties.

Could still be just paper talk but as you say Trig, the link keeps going and going. If Carrick wants to move I guess Spurs will have to sell but only at a price that suits them. Hope he is worth the money if we have or do bid, never stood out for me but haven't seen him play that much.

he is a good player with great passing ability but he is no keane

I seriously doubt SAF is looking at Carrick as a direct replacement for Keane-tough is not how I would describe him! Carrick did well for us last year and his range of passing is superb but he hardly tackles and seems shot shy at times. I wouldn't want to see him leave Spurs but I also don't see why SAF is so keen on him?

Thank God it was in the Sun!!

I think carrick is probably as good as he's going to get, i cant see him making the step up to man u, he's steady but he's not a tasty tackler like keano, i would like to of seen him start a game or two during the group stage, just to see how he handles the pace, i think the jury's still out on him!

Step up to united! i know spurs arnt as good as utd but lets face it, 1 league cup in two years is it! Not that big step relly, you say you are a big team but lets face your probally maybe 4th best team in england! Carrick could easily make that step up!
