Manchester City transfer news: Sky Blues get boost on Jorginho as Manchester United cool interest of Napoli star

Carrick, who will join United manager Jose Mourinho's backroom team from next season, was handed the captain's armband for his final game at Old Trafford and given a guard of honour as the teams emerged for kick-off.

Carrick started in Manchester United's 1-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford and it was his last league appearance as he will be hanging up his boots at the end of the season.

For a player who already had one testimonial, having this one effectively play out as a second was a little greedy - but all jokes aside, it's a fond farewell to a player who will go down as one of Manchester United's best ever midfielders. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and players who, in different ways, have made an important contribution to my growth as a person and as a professional.

'I will have specific coaches, analysts and no assistant manager.

"I don't think it makes sense when Rui is leaving after 17 years".

"I'm going to bring some people in that until this moment you (the press) didn't come up with the name yet". "It's the greatest club in the world and I thank you for your support over the last 12 years".

Earlier, WA Police revealed three firearms found at the Osmington Road property belonged to grandad, Peter Miles. Flowers have been left outside the Osmington property where the bodies of seven people were found.

With United thinking about next week's FA Cup final and making nine changes - and Watford probably looking forward to their summer holidays - the game was short on intensity.

Carrick's long pass played Juan Mata in behind the defense and Marcus Rashford tapped into the goal in the 34th minute for the runners-up. Of course, people will argue that they did not get close enough to City in the title race but, as far as I can see, this has been a very good season for them.

Rashford's goal will at least have done his Wembley prospects no harm, particularly with the fitness of Romelu Lukaku still uncertain.

"This has caused problems, but he missed today's game because he was injured".

Asked if he would be at Vicarage Road next season he was upbeat.

Anthony Martial was omitted from the squad, despite Mourinho stating the France worldwide would be handed a starting berth in his pre-match, fuelling speculation the forward could leave the club in the summer.
