Toronto FC salaries 2018: Lucas Janson’s contract revealed

New, 10 comments

The Argentine costs a pretty penny for Tim Bezbatchenko’s side.

The MLS Players’ Association released their biannual salary breakdown recently, and we learned a little bit more about Toronto FC’s squad composition. We already knew most of the squad’s contract details from the salary release nearer the beginning of the season, but there are a couple of numbers we may not have known, particularly Lucas Janson.

The Argentine loan signing is making $449,000 in guaranteed compensation, making him the seventh most expensive player on the team right now. Ager Aketxe’s salary is still listed on the MLSPA system, although it’s unclear who exactly his paying him (or how much of his salary TFC are picking up).

Jon Bakero’s contract is a hair over $100,000, while Ryan Telfer (who also wasn’t listed last time) is making the standard $54,500 (which I believe is league minimum at the moment — correct me if I’m wrong).

We also learned that Wayne Rooney is making less ($2,776,730.88) than all of TFC’s Designated Players — Sebastian Giovinco remains the highest-paid player in the league at over $7 million.
