Zlatan Ibrahimović Becomes Highest-Paid MLS Player In History After Signing New LA Galaxy Deal

Zlatan Ibrahimović has reportedly seen a massive pay rise after he penned a new deal with LA Galaxy earlier this week.

ESPN reports that multiple unnamed sources have told the publication that the 37-year-old Swedish striker will be paid between $7m to $7.5m in 2019.That's right, the MLS side have substantially increased Ibrahimović's wage bill to keep a hold of him for one more season, especially as AC Milan were keen to re-sign their former player in January.

He pocketed $1.5m in his maiden season at the Dignity Health Sports Park.

According to data from the MLS Players Association, former AC Milan and Real Madrid playmaker Kaká holds the record for the highest salary earned in the league with the $6.66m he received in 2017 at Orlando City.

In fact, the 36-year-old Brazilian earned a total of $7,167,500 in compensation.

As pointed out by ESPN, Ibrahimović's compensation would need to land in the middle of the $7m to $7.5m to take the record from Kaká.

Sebastian Giovinco was the highest-paid player of 2018, with the 31-year-old Toronto FC star pocketing $7,115.555.67 in compensation.

Ibrahimović has had a blistering start to life in the US, as the former Manchester United, Barcelona and Inter Milan star has made 27 appearances and scored 22 times.

"We are very pleased to sign Zlatan to a new contract that will see him return for the 2019 season," says Dennis te Kloese, the LA Galaxy general manager.

"He showed his value last season and we look forward to him representing our club next year.

"With Zlatan returning, we will continue to improve our team in advance of the season."

Ibrahimović claims that he had no intention of leaving LA Galaxy, saying that he is not "finished yet with the MLS."

"There was a lot of talks, a lot of rumors, a lot of whispers around," he said.

"But actually I never left. I stayed here, and like I said, I'm not finished yet with the MLS. I'm still not satisfied with the outcome. I have things still to do.

"I see my first year as warming up, and I think that my second year will be different. Now I know the league, I know my opponents more, even if they've known me since day one, I know how to handle it better now and I know what to do.

"The first year was a warming up, this year, I come to finish it."

Will LA Galaxy be Ibrahimović's last club?

Let us know in the comments.

Written by top40

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
