Manchester United star Michael Carrick is one of the most experienced player in the squad.
However, he is aware of the intense competition for places – especially in the midfield – in wake of the recent signings made by the club. United have brought in names like Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger during the summer. This coupled with the existing names like Ander Herrera means that Carrick may find it difficult to be a first-team regular at Old Trafford. The England international is not in danger of losing his first-team spot all together since manager Louis van Gaal sees him as an important member even now.
