5) Landon Donovan
2014 Guaranteed Salary: $4,583,33.33
Team: LA Galaxy
Landon Donovan has been the darling of American soccer for well over a decade but is only the second highest earning U.S. native playing in the MLS.
Donovan continues to lead the Galaxy and is just one goal away from claiming the title of all-time top scorer in the league.
He is arguably the greatest player ever to play in the MLS, and showed with his forays into the ENglish Premier League with Everton, that he can mix it with the best of them.
