Michael Carrick rule out Newcastle move


Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says he will likely retire from football when he leaves Old Trafford, ruling out a switch to his boyhood club Newcastle.

“No, I think that’s (playing for Newcastle) passed now,” he told MOTD magazine.

“When I was a kid I was supporting Newcastle, I dreamt one day I would do but I count myself very fortunate to have played for Manchester United for so long. It’s just one of those things where you can’t have everything. If and when I finish here (Manchester United), that will probably be it I think.”
