$80,862.

This is approximately the average MLS salary. I found several numbers between $75,000-$85,000.

haha i was wrong in both cases .... thats increable! Becks will earn more in a day or two that they will in a whole season, i wonder where do they get the money from to pay for becks wages ?? His club pays a small price and the mls pays the rest!

Well at least it good to see that some footballers are benig treated like normal people and earn just above them, as far as i know around $80,000 is about 40,000 in english money incase any of you were wondering.

Oh alright. Yeah $80,000 is certainly above average salary in America.

Beck's will earn roughly $5.5 mil per year.

A rule was passed allowing teams to exceed the $2 million salary cap.

He makes $5.5 million per year for playing in the MLS, and the rest comes from endorsements.
