Carrick not thinking about Ronaldo reunion at Man Utd

Michael Carrick revealed that it was a joy to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United but would not go into much detail about the possibility of Ronaldo returning to United this summer.

Michael Carrick has admitted that he is unsure of when he'll retire. He has won the Champions League and domestic league titles with Real this year.

"I haven't got an age in mind really, I need to just take it year by year", said the former England midfielder, who has clocked up 11 years at Old Trafford. "The best player on the planet at the moment, probably going to win the Ballon d'Or again, won the league and the Champions League, who wouldn't want that at your club, just as an influence, let alone what he brings elsewhere?"

The Manchester United vice-captain, who has made 479 premier league appearances, refused to commit to a retirement timeframe, but said he has been inspired by numerous Class of '96 players who continued to play in to their 30s.

He signed a new one-year contract last month and told Sky Sports on Friday that he learned a lot about extending his career from teammates like Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.

"It might take me as long as Giggsy, but I'm not too sure".

"Listen, if Cristiano Ronaldo becomes available the best teams in the world will be queuing up to sign him, it's simple as that", so says former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand yesterday.

Ex-United centre back Ferdinand enjoyed playing with Ronaldo from 2003 until 2009 under Sir Alex Ferguson, witnessing the Portuguese star take the Premier League by storm before moving to Real Madrid. As a Man United fan, I'd love to see him go to Man United.
