Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera will now be his No 2.

Carrick, 35, signed a new one-year contract extension last season while United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled Herrera one of the smartest players he has met.

Rooney, meanwhile, visited a gym in Liverpool yesterday as he closed on a return to Goodison Park after 13 years at Old Trafford.

While Mourinho knows who his new captains will be, he is still frustrated about getting new players.

The former Chelsea boss is ready to pull out of a move for Nemanja Matic.

He believes the Blues are stringing him along while they chase a replacement.
