André-Pierre Gignac is at the end of a large and great professional career. The attacker aged 34 arrived to Tigres on July 2015 and hasn’t yet defined where he will be playing during the next months. With a contract until June 2021 the chances of him leaving the Liga MX side are now increasing.

At the MLS there are many clubs interested on him and one of those is LA Galaxy. The team from Los Angeles could try to sign the French attacker during the next transfer window, if he finally ends his contract and stays as a free agent. The offer for him then would be a millionaire contract.

Gignac was formed at Lorient and player as well for Pau FC, Toulouse, Olympique Marsella and Tigres. Since his arrival in the Mexican team he is one of the favorite players from the fans, and he scored 139 goals and gave 33 assists after 238 matches played. After all, Tigre will try to renew his contract at least for a year more.

But the temptation to play at the MLS is big too, as there he could be one of the best paid players of the league. Currently, Gonzalo Higuaín occupies the first place in that table and, even though Gignac won’t earn as much as him, he could receive a salary much higher than the one he actually has.
