The Mail on Sunday reported that United manager Louis van Gaal is deliberating over whether to delay the announcement of his permanent captain until Carrick returns from injury.

Van Gaal, working with the players in America ahead of their opening game of the season against Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday, suffered a major setback when Carrick was ruled out for 12 weeks with an ankle injury suffered in training.

The 32-year-old England international was high on Van Gaal’s shortlist to be the next United captain following the exit of Nemanja Vidic.
