Freddy Adu will be making his return to the MLS and he’ll do so by joining the Philadelphia Union, according to SoccerByIves.net.

Adu will be introduced as the Philadelphia Union’s newest signing on
Friday, marking his return to MLS after four years in Europe, multiple
sources confirmed to Fox Soccer on Thursday.

The rumors swirling around Adu pegged him landing with Chivas USA, but that deal apparently fell apart, setting up Adu being reunited with his former coach Peter Nowak.

Adu will instantly add some star power in Chester to a team that is somewhat lacking in that area despite its success this season. Union fans should be thrilled with the move, as Adu is exactly the creative go-at people sort of player they need.

UPDATE: Multiple sources have confirmed that Adu is set to join the Union. He will be introduced in a press conference tomorrow.
