Steven Gerrard broke Liverpool fans' hearts when he announced last week that he would be leaving his boyhood club 16 years after making his debut.
When the news broke it was immediately expected for Gerrard to join the Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer, with Gerrard himself confirming he was set to cross the Atlantic.
But a contract has yet to be signed and another MLS team are waiting to swoop, with Orlando City open to signing the former England captain.
According to reports from Ives Galarcep of Goal.com, Orlando City - who will be playing their first season in MLS in 2015 - would be open to a move for Gerrard if the price was right.
"If it's in the neighborhood of $5 million or $6 million then that would probably be difficult to make happen, but at a lower price it's something Orlando City could definitely consider."

The Lions already have two designated players on their books in Brazilian midfielder Kaka and the slightly less well-known Bryan Rochez, a 19-year old forward from Honduras.
That leaves Orlando with one last spot to play with, meaning that Steven Gerrard ending up in Florida is an entirely possible proposition.
I am sure that Orlando's Brazilian owner Flavio Augusto da Silva would like to add one of his fellow countrymen as the team's final DP, but the sheer marketing and exposure related possibilities of landing Gerrard would be far too much to say no to, especially for an expansion team looking to make a name for themselves in their debut season.
However, with MLS's archaic transfer rules, nobody really knows what can and will happen with Gerrard at the moment, with the Galaxy in the driving seat to sign a player they feel could be a natural replacement for a) David Beckham and b) Landon Donovan, who retired at the end of the 2014 season.
