Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is so far one of the worst signings in the history of the LA Galaxy and even the MLS, but that is not reflected in his salary. Hernandez's salary is worthy of one of the best strikers in Europe. What's more, if you compare him to players like Lukaku, Ansu Fati or Dybala, Chicharito Hernandez receives more money than they do.
How can it be that players of the stature of Ansu Fati or Dybala earn less money than Chicharito Hernandez if they are in a better league and are among the best forwards in the world? The answer is simple: when the LA Galaxy hired Hernandez, they thought he was going to be Ibrahimovic's successor and that the only thing he was going to generate in MLS were goals and wins. Clearly that did not happen.
Like all players in the world, Chicharito Hernandez has a fixed salary and to that are added the awards, which this season is very difficult for him to receive. As a fixed salary, Hernandez earns a little more than $ 7 million dollars, while Ansu Fati only $ 4.5 more prizes. Big difference for the different presents.
For this same reason, Hernandez is very comfortable in La Galaxy despite receiving criticism from around the world. Today, the Mexican player is thinking more about his economic future than about his footballing level and that is shown every time his team goes out to play a game.
