News broke from the BBC just minutes ago, that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been given permission to talk to overseas clubs to sign a pre-contract to join them in the summer after his current contract with the Reds in England expires at the end of this current Premier League season. This has ignited a swirl of speculation that the longtime Liverpool midfielder will join an MLS side. The LA Galaxy are said to be leading the race to sign him. I think it would be a great move for the MLS. Personally I wouldn't want him to end up at LA, but it would add to league none-the-less wherever he would land, as long as it's with a play-off contending team. What news we will hear in the coming weeks will be interesting as the US transfer window is open for the off season currently, but then again so is Europe's.
