He still hopes to play a part in the run-in after recovering fully from a heart problem earlier in the season.

The classy playmaker arrived at the club from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006 and was awarded a testimonial past year, in recognition of his magnificent service to the Reds.

"There comes a time when, you like it or you don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football and that's pretty much where I'm at", Carrick said on Monday.

"Yes. It's kind of been sorted out", the midfielder stated whether he would be moving behind the scenes.

The 36-year-old, who joined Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 for an £18m fee, became a mainstay in his side over the years and has a decorated trophy cabinet - winning five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one Champions League trophy. "But it's looking likely, yes". That's where I'm at and you have got to accept it.

The midfielder progressed through the youth ranks at West Ham United before having spells at Swindon Town, Birmingham, Spurs and then Manchester United. "But he's still got some way to go to fully establish himself as a big player for this club but so far he's on a great track, he's given himself the best possible chance to fulfil that." .

"I had a problem in the Burton game it started in the second half, had a few tests and the same problem came back on the Sunday of that week".

'I got back fit and I wanted to finish on my own terms really.

"I need to keep myself fit and ready. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at".
