After the anticipation and subsequent disappointment of the recent transfer window, it’s been incredible to note just how many transfer rumours are still doing the rounds.
One story that could be quite interesting, are the claims that Michael Carrick will leave Manchester United at the end of the season. Carrick has been reduced to something of a bit part player at Old Trafford and there are reports that Alex Ferguson will let him go in the summer for a fee around the £10m mark.
Harry worked with Carrick at West Ham and as we know, he isn’t afraid to bring ex Spurs men back to the Lane and Tottenham have naturally been linked with him.
Carrick played just two seasons at Spurs and his last game was the lasagne-gate affair in 2006. Now 29, he seems to have dropped out of the England picture and his appearances for United are limited.
Having come close to signing Charlie Adam, it’s clear that Harry is interested in buying another ball-playing central midfielder. £10m sounds a bit steep for a 29-year old Carrick, but if the price was lower, would you welcome him back at White Hart Lane, or is he past it? For what it’s worth, I’d have him straight back without question.
