Michael Carrick is expected to end a glittering 19-year playing career in May but remain at Manchester United as a first-team coach under José Mourinho.

The former England worldwide even underwent a minor procedure to solve an ongoing heart problem and Mourinho had already revealed that Carrick would be offered a coaching position with United´s first-team squad whenever he wanted it. "I'm really happy", the United boss said on Friday. "He has had a few months without even training so now he is in his second week of training with the team".

According to recent reports, the club gaffer had conceded the English footballer was about to return to full-fledged training over the past weeks and maintained that the 36-year-old would definitely have an impact on the remainder of the current season. He's a very important player for us.

Although, it is believed the Ivorian has a release clause of £35 million and could be the subject of a three-way transfer battle between Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool also interested in signing the midfielder with both clubs keen on bolstering their squad in the summer.

"We will need an update in relation to that".

"But the club would be very happy for him to do that".

"Sam Johnstone in Aston Villa is playing all the time and is an important player for them and they are going to fight for promotion, we are also happy to have him there".
