Freddy Adu's roller-coaster ride through Europe could end with a return to Major League Soccer.

Chivas USA is lining up a move to sign Adu as a Designated Player, high-ranking MLS sources told SBI late Tuesday night.

Adu is currently in the final year of his contract with Benfica, but could be allowed to move to MLS on a free transfer as the Portuguese club is looking to unload his contract.

A move to Chivas USA would re-unite Adu with Chivas USA head coach Robin Fraser, who was an assistant coach with Real Salt Lake during Adu's final season in MLS before heading to Europe in 2007.

A return to MLS would mean more playing time for the former U.S. Youth national team star and current senior national team midfielder, and could help boost his chances of playing a key role on the U.S. Olympic team in 2012.

What do you think of this development? Like the idea of Adu returning to MLS? Think he should stay in Europe?
