Most expensive Major League Soccer transfers ever

Most expensive Major League Soccer transfers ever

The list of most expensive players in Major League Soccer history could change should San Diego FC complete the signing of Mexican national team star Hirving “Chucky” Lozano.

A report from The Athletic’s Tom Bogert revealed that MLS’ newest club is close to finalizing a deal to bring the 28-year-old winger back to North America. It would Lozano’s first time playing for a North American club since he rose through the ranks at Liga MX outfit Pachuca before departing in July 2017 to sign for Dutch side PSV Eindhoven for a reported fee of $14m.

Bogert explained that San Diego are expected to pay around a $12 million transfer fee to land Lozano, meaning the former Napoli player would instantly become one of the league’s most expensive inbound transfers if the deal goes through.

It would also be a monumental moment for an MLS expansion side to break the bank to land one of the most talented forwards in CONCACAF. Years ago, MLS sides could only dream of paying multi-million dollar transfer fees, but that’s all changed in recent seasons. If Lozano does sign for the league’s newest team ahead of their inaugural 2025 campaign, he would become the seventh-most expensive signing in MLS history.
