Steven Gerrard expected to announce Liverpool exit on Friday, MLS move likely

HITC Sport Breaking News

According to reports tonight, Liverpool captain and legend Steven Gerrard will announce his departure on Friday.

Many thought that Steven Gerrard would be a one-club man, but reports suggest that the Liverpool legend is set to announce his departure from the club on Friday.

Reports from the Liverpool Echo, Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and many more speculate that Friday will see Gerrard confirm that he will leave Anfield at the end of his contract this summer.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has been non-committal over Gerrard's future this season, despite knowing that the Reds skipper would be out of contract in the summer - which ultimately sparked rumours that Gerrard and Liverpool would part company.

The 34-year-old is expected to confirm his exit on Friday, with a move to the United States highly anticipated, as LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls are both reportedly desperate to land the former England captain.

Gerrard has been part of the Liverpool furniture since the age of seven, and will leave having made over 700 appearances for the club, scoring 180 goals in the process.

His performances have noticeably dipped this season, but that doesn't make him any less revered in the red half of Merseyside, and his exit will no doubt disappoint and even upset most Liverpool fans.

Gerrard will likely sign a pre-contract agreement with a team, meaning he will play out the final six months of his contract with Liverpool in what will be a long, long celebration of his remarkable time with the club.
