Carrick Wanted By Villa?
Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has dreams of signing Manchester United's Michael Carrick and a dream is likely to be all that it is. According to The People, Villa want Carrick and are looking at paying around £8 million for him, that would be unlikely as United paid Tottenham much, much more than that. Carrick himself says he is happy at United and would like to spend the rest of his career at Old Trafford where he is under contract until the end of next season. Carrick is quoted in The People, saying, “I have seen some stories suggesting I’d be leaving last summer but I take no notice. It’s part of the game. “I have never thought I was on my way out of United, not for one minute. It has never entered my mind. “And neither has the manager said anything to me. This is a great place to be and results like the one against Valencia make it all worthwhile when you play a part in something like that. “I have the rest of this season and next season left on my contract and I would like to stay here for the rest of my career. Why would I want to go anywhere else? “It’s up to me this season to work hard to earn the right to do that and to make it a reality. So the aim is to be in the team as often as I can.”
