Everton fans do not appear to be keen on the rumours suggesting that they are going to attempt to sign Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick.
The Daily Mirror have suggested that Everton could make a bid for Carrick at the end of the season.
The England international’s contract at Old Trafford expires in the summer, and he could, therefore, be available on a free transfer.
Carrick is yet to be offered a new deal by United, meaning that his future is firmly up in the air.
Everton are said to be one of the clubs who could offer the 34-year-old a new home, with Roberto Martinez reportedly keen on signing the midfielder.
However, a number of Everton fans are fearful that Carrick is past his best now and wouldn’t be what the club need to move forward.
The Toffees have expressed great ambition since receiving new investment from Farhad Moshiri, and many of their fans do not feel that Carrick’s addition would be a worthwhile one.
Why do I see we have £150m to spend and then the only 2 people talked about this week are Carrick and Heaton from Burnley? #EFC— Andy Young (@andyoungy) March 27, 2016
With the money that will be coming into Everton. With all the players we could be looking at buying. WHY are we looking at Carrick on a free— Karla (@DuckyMomo65) March 27, 2016
Those people who would have Carrick need 2 have a word with themselves, probably the same people who want Martinez to stay— David Graham (@DaveGraham76) March 27, 2016

So with our multi million investor coming in we are linked to... Michael Carrick. Sack Martinez please before it's too late...— Sam Broadbank (@Samman361) March 27, 2016
Moshiri: "Roberto, I'm giving a you £150m budget, I expect big signings"— ️ (@PhilSwagielka) March 27, 2016
Martinez: "Phenomenal, Michael Carrick should be marquee signing"
If Carrick does opt to leave Manchester United in the summer, he will do so having made over well over 300 appearances for the club.
