Indeed, the New England Revolution have made Mancienne the highest paid defender in the league.
He inked an 18-month deal and is one of only two defenders earning in excess of $1million, taking home $1.28m.
His season will end on Sunday, after the Revs final regular season game, having failed to reach the play-offs.
Mancienne, who has also played for Wolves, declared in August that he couldn't turn down the chance of a new start in the US.
“It was just an exciting opportunity," said Mancienne. “It was something that I couldn't turn down. I had other options in England, but to be honest this was something that was amazing. I think it's beautiful.
“[Coach Brad Friedel] is a massive name. He's had a great career. He's got bundles of experience, so I'm really looking forward to working underneath him, to learning from him and hopefully doing really well for him."
