Michael Carrick: Refusing to give up the fight for fourth

Michael Carrick has reportedly turned down a £6million-a-year offer from the Chinese Super League in order to stay and fight to win a new deal at Manchester United.

The England midfielder was allegedly the subject of a megabucks approach from Asia recently but the former West Ham and Tottenham midfielder would prefer to extend his stay in the Premier League, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Carrick, 34, has been one of the mainstays in the United squad so far this season but his contract runs out at the end of his campaign.

China has fuelled a huge investment in their national football league on late, with their transfer record broken four times during the winter window.

A number of high-profile names are expected to join Jackson Martinez, Ramires and Alex Teixeira in the Far East this summer, with Carrick reportedly having caught the eye.
