Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is close to securing a summer move to Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy on an 18-month contract, BBC
The 34-year-old will leave the Reds at the end of the season when his current deal expires, and he has recently confirmed that he would move to the United States. An announcement over the much-touted move to LA Galaxy is expected to be made at the end of the week, with Gerrard set to become one of the MLS’ highest earners.
Should he join, Gerrard would follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and former Liverpool teammate Roy Keane in moving to the California club, as well as adding to the increasing number of English players choosing to end their careers in the MLS, with Frank Lampard having agreed to join new franchise New York City FC last summer.
Gerrard has scored seven goals for Liverpool this season, including both in the 2-1 FA Cup win over AFC Wimbledon on Monday evening. He has spent his entire career at Anfield, winning two FA Cups, the Champions League and UEFA Cup among other trophies and individual honours.
