According to The Mirror, Manchester United will bid for Michael Carrick should the midfielder reject a new contract at Tottenham.

Carrick allegedly wants a pay rise of over THREE TIMES what he is picking up at the moment, and Spurs are reluctant to pay the £50,000 a week he is asking.

If Carrick fails to get his request, and rejects an improvement of his deal, Manchester United are said to be the first to go calling at White Hart Lane.
