"I still feel that Real Madrid probably hold all the cards, it'll be down to them and it's still going to be their final decision, he's under contract, so if they decide to let him go because he wants to leave or because of the situation he's in in the courts or whatever it is, we'll see".

Michael Carrick insists he is not thinking about a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo following suggestions the Portugal great is keen on a return to Manchester United.

'I don't think he really wants to play as a No.9 because he can be tied down there and he can be left a bit isolated, ' he told Goal. "It might take me as long as Giggsy, but I'm not too sure", he said.

Carrick, 35, has spent 11 years with United and was already feted at a testimonial match last month at Old Trafford.

"We are looking up and we are looking to achieve something this year and win more trophies".

Speaking of last season season however, the maestro said, "It was a big way to finish to get the Europa League trophy with the added incentive of a Champions League spot".

Lindelof cost £31million and will be expected to go straight into Mourinho's side when the new season gets underway.

"Listen, if Cristiano Ronaldo becomes available the best teams in the world will be queuing up to sign him, it's simple as that", so says former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand yesterday.

However, Carrick says it is "not for [him] to get involved", on whether Ronaldo was to come to "United or leaves Madrid, that's not my business".

Ex-United centre back Ferdinand enjoyed playing with Ronaldo from 2003 until 2009 under Sir Alex Ferguson, witnessing the Portuguese star take the Premier League by storm before moving to Real Madrid.

"Of course, I was lucky enough to play with him".
