Michael Carrick signed a contract extension at Manchester United, according to Perth Glory CEO Peter Filopoulos.
Carrick, who was linked with a move to Australian side Perth Glory due to his close friendship with captain Richard Garcia, will remain with the Red Devils under Jose Mourinho next term.
“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.”
