Although Michael Carrick was awarded another season long contract, upon the completion of his old deal his game-time this season has been minimal.

Our opinion is that the midfielder will be heading towards the Old Trafford exit, after a fine career with Manchester United, next May.

His departure will leave a void in the squad that will have to be filled.

According to one red-top publication, Daily Star, Jose Mourinho has already identified two possible candidates to replace Carrick.

The first, according to our source, is the Roma midfielder, 29-year-old Radja Nainggolan, whilst the second, according to our source, is the Atletico Madrid midfielder, 22-year-old Saul Niguez.

Although both are probably of equal standing, personally, I`d go for the latter, purely because his age suggests he`d have more of a long-term future at Old Trafford.

But, given the choice, which of the two would you prefer to see in our famous shirt?
