Man City midfielder Lampard joining New York City FC as highest paid in MLS

Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard will join New York City FC the highest paid in MLS.

The Chelsea legend will be earning a $6million (£3.8million) annual salary plus a 'marketing bonus', according to Sports Illustrated.

Other MLS players to earn $6million or more include Lampard's New York City teammate David Villa, former Brazil midfielder Kaka - now with Orlando City - and Toronto FC's Michael Bradley.

Steven Gerrard, who will join LA Galaxy this summer after deciding not to extend his contract at Liverpool, will earn a roughly equivalent wage.
