Who’re the highest earning player in the Major League Soccer for the year 2023?

According to report, the Major Soccer League (MLSPL) Players Association released the salary guide for the fans to have a first-hand information of wages allocated to international signings and homegrown players.

While the MLS is perceived to be the league for the veteran players who have seen it all in mainstream Europe, it must also be said that the American league is on a continuous rise in terms of ranking in world football.

Sebastian Driussi – (Austin FC, $6m)

Austin FC may not be the finest in the league in terms of on-field performance, but they’re certainly one of the best that pays their players well and Drussi is one of them.

Drussi got his big contract with Austin FC in 2022 after he shone-out an amazing performance for the team and also won the MVP Award that same year.

As at May 2023 the Argentine has scored 35-goals in 66-game, a great form which gives credence to his consistency and reason why he was offered a lucrative deal by Austin FC hierarchy.

Federico Bernardeschi – (Toronto FC, $6.3m)

If reports in the news are anything to go by, Bernardeschi could leave the MLS this summer for a return to Serie A with Lazio or Roma.

While the above statement is nothing but a rumour, it must be noted that the former Juventus midfielder his one of the highest earning player in the Major Soccer League with a take home of $6.5million.

Since Bernardeschi joined Toronto, he’s brought into the team unrivalled confidence that led him to scoring 11-goals in 27-league game and the never give-up attitude that often helps his teammates to fight for the team.

Javier Hernandez ‘Chicharito’ – (LA Galaxy, $7.4m)

Chicharito is nothing but a veteran of the game who has seen it all at the highest-level before coming to the Major Soccer League, having played for Manchester United and Real Madrid.

With 17-goals scored in 2021 and 18-goals scored in 2022, that shows the legendary striker is not done in terms of putting the ball at the back of the net.

At the beginning of the season, he endured a difficult start with injuries limiting him to six MLS appearance, however that doesn’t stop his club in paying him a eye-watering salary.

Lorenzo Insigne – (Toronto FC, $7.5m)

Since Insigne left Napoli last year he’s only played in 17 MLS matches for Toronto FC, but interestingly he’s magnanimous enough to halved his wages from his debut campaign to provide more flexibility to his struggling club.

While the Italian move to MLS still remain a mystery to many, with many believing he could still give some of Serie A top-side two to three more consistent season before going elsewhere.

He may not have won the Serie A title with Napoli this season, however, he still remain one of their cult-hero who gave the Partenopai quite a lot of surreal moments in the league.

Xherdan Shaqiri – (Chicago Fire, $8.2m)

If there’s any player who has paid his dues for clubs and national team, it is Xherdan Shaqiri having played for team like Basel, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Stoke City, Liverpool, and Lyon before coming to MLS.

The former Liverpool star hasn’t really hit the ground-running in the MLS since joining Chicago Fire from Lyon, with only seven goals in 36-matches as of May 2023 to his name.

With his contract still running at Chicago Fire, Shaqiri could come good for the Eastern Conference side next season with his goals, assists and some of his sublime free-kick trade mark.
