The MLS Player's Union has released the 2009 MLS salaries (at least on deals submitted before recently).
David Beckham remains the highest-paid player at more than $6.5 million in guaranted compensation. Cuauhtemoc Blanco comes in second with close to $3 million in guaranteed money. Juan Pablo Angel comes in third with almost $1.8 million. Freddie Ljungberg is fourth with a $1.3 million deal.
Kansas City wins the discount DP award for bringing former Designated Player Claudio Lopez back for $180,000.
There are plenty of players missing from this list, basically all the rookies, undrafted college and trialists still trying to make teams. You also player players such as Alfredo Pacheco and Carlos Johnson, who haven't had their deals finalized yet.
What do you think of the salaries? Who do you think is the most overpaid player? How about the best bargain in MLS?
