Having missed the start of the season with injury, Carrick’s reintroduction has added a measure of stability to what was looking like a very unsteady Manchester United side.
Van Gaal is thought to be a big fan of the Englishman, and with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season the Dutch manager is keen to tie him down for another year.
The Red Devils spent a reported £153m last summer, and look like continuing to spend in January. The new manager clearly feels Carrick still has plenty to offer however, and his performances this season would suggest he is correct.
