Kissing goodbye? Carrick is out of contract at United soon
Manchester United have not discussed Michael Carrick 's future with the midfielder as he approaches the final month of his existing contract.
Carrick, who turns 35 in July, signed a one-year extension last year but revealed in February he had not held talks about remaining at United.
However, M.E.N. Sport understands the club has not even spoken with the club's second-longest serving player about his future and Carrick had to personally arrange for his children to accompany him onto the pitch against Bournemouth on Tuesday.
Two seasons ago, interim manager Ryan Giggs arranged for Rio Ferdinand 's children to be mascots for his last Old Trafford appearance against Sunderland, a week before he was shabbily informed he would not receive a new contract in the dressing room at Southampton.

Carrick jointly hoisted the FA Cup with captain Wayne Rooney on Saturday and United's players are believed to have arranged a get together for Carrick, regardless of whether he is offered a new deal or not.
A source said the players are 'desperate' for Carrick to stay and injured defender Luke Shaw outlined the significance of the vice-captain's seniority in the FA Cup final programme.

“Carras is like the father figure in the team now,” Shaw said. “He tends to give advice and look out for people because he's a caring guy.
“What he's been through with this club is massive, but you can forget sometimes because he's so humble. He's a great player who has achieved so much.”
Jose Mourinho's imminent appointment could clarify Carrick's future, since the club has not agreed any new playing deals this calendar year, with 19-year-old Cameron Borthwick-Jackson also out of contract in the summer.
Last year, United concluded deals for Tyler Blackett, Paddy McNair and Andreas Pereira when they were in the last six months of their contracts. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones also inked new deals, with their previous deals expiring in summer 2016.
