Michael Carrick excited meeting Man City in Beijing

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is keen to face Manchester City in China.

Carrick, who recently committed his future to the Reds for another year, is relishing the clash with City and says United’s opposition in Beijing will bring an extra edge to the preparation match.

“I’m sure there will be a little bit of added spice for a pre-season friendly and it’ll be great for the fans out there to witness,” the midfielder told ManUtd.com.

“The support we get out there is incredible so the atmosphere will go up a notch I’m sure.

“Pre-season is an important time for the team and for the players, making sure that you get to that level that you need to be at for the start of the season.”
