Gerrard is now into the final six months of his Anfield contract and free to talk to clubs from abroad about the prospect of moving on a free transfer in the summer, a decision that he looks almost certain to announce on Friday, which could lead to months of speculation about the former England star’s future.

Having spent his entire career at Liverpool, it will be a huge decision from Gerrard to move, particularly as manager Brendan Rodgers had made positive noises about wanting to keep the veteran at the club, despite some questionable performances during the season so far.

MLS rivals LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls are believed to be leading the chase for Gerrard’s signature, with both needing a marquee signings after the retirements of Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry following the end of the MLS season recently.
