Giovani dos Santos’ base contract is $3,750,000, with $5,500,000 in guaranteed salary.


A few things to consider:

-Jermaine Jones is making $600,000, which is interestingly enough the same amount the U.S. international made last year for the Colorado Rapids.

-Joáo Pedro’s salary is only $120,000 against the cap, meaning a significant chunk of his TAM contract represents the transfer fee the Galaxy paid.

-If you saw Jack McInerney’s salary figure and had a mild heart attack, not to fear. LA are only on the hook for the MLS minimum.

-The league is still working with the Galaxy to place Robbie Rogers on the season-ending injury list, which could free up $225,000 of cap space.

-Emmanuel Boateng is still underpaid.

What do you think of this year’s salaries?
