What could cost LA Galaxy to add Savanier to their squad?

Unlike Gignac or Insigne, as both signed as free agents, the 30-year-old French midfielder is still under contract with Montpellier until 2023, which means the Los Angeles team would have to pay at least $13.6 million if they want to acquire Savanier’s economic rights.
