Carrick signed a new contract last summer as well as receiving the captain's armband, but the 36-year-old has barely featured this season having undergone treatment earlier in the season to fix an irregular heart rhythm.
Carrick joined United in 2006 and won five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013), one FA Cup (2016) and three League Cups ( 2009, 2010, 2017).
"That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".
Carrick added: "All the glitz and the glamour that can surround things these days, Scott doesn't seem too interested in that, which is fantastic - especially at this stage of his career. It's something that you have got to accept". "We re still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet but it s looking likely".
Carrick made 463 appearances for Manchester United throughout his career, winning 18 honours with the club.
United last hosted a Champions League knockout game in 2014 and skipper Carrick says it is high time they competed again for European football's top trophy.
'Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that, ' he told the media ahead of tomorrow's game.
'I got back fit and I wanted to finish on my own terms really.
"I need to keep myself fit and ready".
'I understood after getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as perhaps I might have done, but that's something that I understood. "There were 2 or 3 times when I wondered whether it was worth still playing, but I soon got over that". So far this season, the midfielder has been restricted to just four appearances because of cardiac arrhythmia.
