Between the trio they have 357 Premier League goals.
As part of the MLS rules the salaries of the players are open to the public and in the 2013 list the top three biggest earners are all ex-Premier League stars.
Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane and Tim Cahill lead the rankings after making the trip across the Atlantic following successful spells in England.
Henry’s annual salary of £2.8million makes the New York Red Bulls striker the highest paid player in America’s top flight.
Second place goes to former Tottenham ace Keane, who is now at LA Galaxy, on a little under the Frenchman’s £2.8million figure, whilst New York continue to flash the cash by also forking out £2.3million a year to Cahill.
The influx of English-based players to the MLS started with the arrival of David Beckham in Los Angeles in 2007, although the current PSG midfielder earned significantly more than the modern rich list with a yearly contract of £4.2million.
The figures released by the league read somewhat like a who’s who of footballers that English fans will remember, with three other past Premier League stars making it into the top 10.
Galaxy’s Landon Donovan appears at No.4 as the only player from the USA in the top 10 and will be recognised by Everton fans, after the second most capped American in history had two loan spells at Goodison Park.
New Seattle signing Obafemi Martins played for both Newcastle and Birmingham, whilst sneaking in at number nine is Kenny Miller at Vancouver – who previously played for Wolves and Derby County, as well as both Celtic and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.
