In a special edition of United Abroad earlier this month, it was revealed that Bahia will not keep Freddy Adu heading into the 2014 season, making him a free agent after December. In case you missed it, click the link above. The poll is now closed, but 223 of you voted; 69 of the community would like to see Adu back with D.C. United in 2014, 39 of you (including me) would like to see Adu in MLS, but not with DCU, the rest of you (115) believe that Mexico or anywhere else is a nice destination for him. Personally, after thinking about it more, the only way I'd like him to return to DCU is if he took a salary less than 100k. Low risk, probably a lower reward (collective sigh). Anyways, Andrew Winner of the Seattle Times' Take 2 Blog has some thoughts on Adu.
