International Players

Florian Thauvin is a sensation in the MX League and already charges better than Chicharito in the MLS

The arrival of Florian Thauvin to Mexican football makes it clear which is the line that Liga MX is trying to follow, which is being loaded with international stars.

Florian Thauvin is a player whose name is already of specific weight. The Frenchman, with vast experience in international football, left his mark in Ligue 1, and a short time later in the Premier League, and will seek to do the same in Liga MX, in which he recently disembarked. The truth is that he is, together with André-Pierre Gignac, the main promise of a Tigres who undoubtedly wants to win everything, and for that he spends a lot of money.

What about Javier Hernández in Major League Soccer is different, since he has been playing in the North American country for some years now, and despite his impressive football career, his age becomes a condition when it comes to demanding or signing a contract. However, that does not mean that he is, today, the highest paid footballer in the league that is gaining more and more strength, and promises to be part of the elite of world football.

If we analyze both realities, we will see that Florian Thauvin, the highest paid soccer player in Mexican soccer, earns more money than Chicharito, who became the best paid player in the United States, after Carlos Vela dissociated himself from LAFC.

In this way, Tigres pays a total of 6.1 million dollars a year to the French footballer, just 100,000 more than its competitor, Javier Hernández, in MLS, but it is worth noting that this happens in a smaller league, and that moves a flow of money much lower than the North American.
