Former English international Daniel Sturridge is taking the lead in the North American Championship. Inter Miami and DC United want it.
The two MLS clubs want to fill one final spot with a “designated player” and Sturridge is one of their main goals. A mutual interest as the English striker is also very interested in the possibility of joining the United States.
The 30-year-old ends up serving a four-month ban on all football-related activities in June after being found guilty of breaking the rules of sports betting. This was decided after his first six-week suspension was considered overly cautious in appealing to the FA for an independent commission, where his fine was also raised to £ 150,000. This resulted in Trabzonspor canceling his contract after scoring seven goals in 15 appearances in the Turkish Super League.
Sturridge has long-term ambitions to play in MLS because of a cultural interest in the country and a family bond through his partner. In a podcast with Oxford Union last week, Sturridge said he is already training across the Atlantic for a future transfer.
