Well, it's finally official.
So, does this, combined with Scholes' return, move Giggs back to the left and O'Shea to the bench? Is a Scholes/Carrick central midfield the way to go for United? And who from Scholes, Giggs, Ronaldo, and Carrick will take responsibility for set pieces?
Michael Carrick signed for Manchester United on Monday evening after the final details of his £18.6million move from Tottenham were finalised.
United officials confirmed the deal had been done, with Carrick coming through a medical and agreeing personal terms.
