​DC United start talks with ex-Liverpool forward Sturridge

DC United are interested in signing former England striker Daniel Sturridge.

The ex-Liverpool man is out of contract and has not been able to secure a deal with any club.

ESPN indicates that DC United are undergoing talks with the injury-prone front man.

It is possible that Sturridge is seen as a replacement for Wayne Rooney, who will be heading to Derby County in a player-coach deal at the conclusion of the current MLS season.

But it is unlikely that Sturridge would command anywhere near the money that Rooney received from his DC United deal.
