2010 MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER SALARY LIST

Leave it Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Union to release the 2010 salary numbers when the whole world is watching the action in South Africa.

Needless to say, David Beckham is still the highest-paid player in Major League Soccer.

Beckham, who hasn’t played this season for the Los Angeles Galaxy because of a torn Achilles tendon, again tops the league at $6.5 million in guaranteed compensation this year, according to the list released Monday.

Landon Donovan, Beckham’s Galaxy teammate, is second at $2.13 million, followed by Juan Pablo Angel of the New York Red Bulls at $1.92 million. Toronto FC’s Julian de Guzman ($1.72 million) and Seattle Sounder Freddie Lungberg ($1.31 million) round out the top 5.

U.S. World Cup team players, aside from Donovan, include the Galaxy’s Edson Buddle ($188,448), Chivas USA’s Jonathan Bornstein ($100,000) and Real Salt Lake’s Robbie Findley ($87,316).
