DANIEL STURRIDGE will start training with Real Mallorca tomorrow as the forgotten former Liverpool star eyes a shock return to football.

But now Sturridge, who’s worked tirelessly to find a new club for the last 15 months, could be set for a comeback in Spain.
Real Mallorca finished second in the Segunda Division last season and are preparing for their first season back in LaLiga.
And they’ve turned to the ex-Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea striker for help.
A club statement read: “RCD Mallorca has extended an invitation for Daniel Sturridgeto participate from tomorrow, July 14, in the training sessions of the club’s first team as part of its preparation process.”
Mallorca were relegated to the second tier after a poor 2019-20 season, but bounced back at the first time of asking.
For Sturridge, he will hope to get his career back on track with the goal of breaking back into the Premier League one day.
Sturridge kicked off his youth career at City, before spending three years in their first-team set-up between 2003 and 2006.
The 26-cap England international then moved to Chelsea – spending one season on loan at Bolton – before his breakout spell at Liverpool.
Sturridge spent six years at Liverpool between 2013 and 2019, with his 2013-14 partnership with Luis Suarez – dubbed ‘SAS’ almost guiding the Reds to the Premier League crown.
