As announced, Denis Bouanga will continue his career in MLS. The Gabonese international will leave AS Saint-Etienne for Los Angeles FC, where a three and a half year contract awaits him. The transaction was concluded in the last hours of the American transfer window, closed since Thursday evening at midnight.
A real jackpot for the winger, who will benefit from the status of designated player, with the key to a monthly salary outside the salary cap. Concretely, this means that the former Nîmes will be paid much better than his new teammates Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini, who have arrived in recent weeks in the Californian franchise without falling under the same derogatory status.
