Earlier this week, Major League Soccer announced its Best XI voted on by players, club leadership, and media members. One goalkeeper, three defenders, four midfielders and three forwards were selected to the Best XI this year.
Following up on an earlier comparison of player compensation and data from the Castrol Index, we have provided the Best XI alongside the same data. The Best XI is valued at $11,980,883 based on guaranteed compensation.
If the Best XI was selected based on guaranteed compensation for the one goalkeeper, three defenders, four midfielders and three forwards voted on, the team would be valued at $20,876,483.
