It'd be a good move if and only if we bring in another midfielder to protect Carrick. He's got a good eye for a pass, and he can tackle. But he's no Keane, his style isn't the same. At Tottenham he does well because Davids covers for him, so he doesn't have to do as much of the dirty work.
He'd be great as a deep-lying playmaker though, given his vision and passing ability.
20M for Carrick now!? No way! This is ridiculous.. How can clubs charge such an extortionate amount of money for a player? They bought him for 2.5m! There's no way he has done anything to merit this meteoric rise in value.
If he's worth 20m. Then Riquelme must be hitting 35M..
He's not worth it. I would rather stick with what we have than pay that. Yes we do need new players but Carrick would not be the deciding factor in a title race against chelsea.
Well, the thing is also that Tottenham have no reason to sell Carrick, who was arguably their best midfielder last season. Sure, he had help from Davids so he could play his game, but that makes no difference.
They don't need to sell him, we want to buy him. They'll hold out for as much as they can.
dont see the big rage with carrick, hes rubbish not good enough, like can you see him stopping ronaldino and messi in CL, no chance. tho i think that utd have bought him cause spurs bought the otha guy for his position. tho bet he'd be 10m cheeper if he wasnt english.
The problem with summer signings in world cup year is managers wait and see. But, if a player has a good world cup, the original team interested suddenly becomes outbid by a more "attractive" club. Not to mention the price going up - and up!
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a bid for Michael Carrick, while United have also turned down a bid from Real Madrid for Ruud van Nistelrooy. Ferguson is searching for a new midfielder, as he looks to find a long-term replacement for Roy Keane. Tottenham admitted last month that United had tabled a bid for Carrick, but that they had rejected the bid out of hand. Ferguson is a big admirer of the former West Ham United man and is thought to be weighing up a new move for the classy midfielder. "We are trying to sign another central midfielder," said Ferguson. "We have made a bid for Michael Carrick, but they (Tottenham) turned it down."
