Final LA Galaxy 2022 player salary figures revealed

Galaxy finish year with 2nd-highest payroll in MLS.

The MLS Players Union released the updated player salary figures for the 2022 season on Monday, and with some incoming players and a few major fluctuations in apparent bonus money, there’s some changes for the LA Galaxy.

Since the last salary drop happened this year, LA has added four players. Chase Gasper is a typical domestic “middle class” player, while Martin Caceres is on a very cheap deal relative to his experience. Meanwhile, Gaston Brugman is making over $1 million, while Riqui Puig is right at the TAM threshold, with his guaranteed compensation seeming to take him over the top. Having said that, I think his contract was fully approved by MLS and don’t think it’s in any violation in the eyes of the league.

Meanwhile, several players saw jumps in their bonuses, especially Douglas Costa and Chicharito, who each saw their guaranteed compensation jump well over $1 million each in a few months. As a result, the changes mean LA’s total guaranteed compensation is over $7 million more than it was earlier this season, and their total figure is second highest in the league, at $27,302,914, only behind Toronto FC’s astronomical $32.2 million.

Here’s the full updated salary info for the Galaxy:
