United No.1 de­mand­ing £120k-a-week to keep Real’s hands off him

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

“Manch­ester United? They had just signed Phil Jones in my po­si­tion.

“PSG? The project there wasn’t clear. The Qataris had only just ar­rived and it was all very vague.

“My first re­ac­tion when Real wanted to sign me was not, ‘Of course I will go’.

“I only made my decision when I knew that the coach wanted me to play in the first team.”

United will to­day as­sess Michael Car­rick’s fit­ness as the mid­fielder steps up his re­turn from in­jury.

The 33-year-old has not fea­tured this sea­son after pick­ing up an an­kle in­jury in July.

But Car­rick was due to play in a train­ing match yes­ter­day and could even be fit to be part of the squad that trav­els to face West Brom in the Premier League on Mon­day night.
