Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne will become the highest-paid Major League Soccer player ever after agreeing to join Toronto FC on a free transfer.

He will earn a reported $15m (£11m) per year, beating Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s $7.2m salary at LA Galaxy.

The 30-year-old was part of the Italy side that won Euro 2020 last July after beating England on penalties.

“This a historic and exciting day for our club,” said Toronto president Bill Manning.

“Lorenzo is a world-class attacking player in the prime of his career. He was a European champion with Italy and has performed on the biggest stages during his club career with Napoli.”

Insigne has signed a pre-contract agreement with Toronto and will join on a four-year contract in July once the Serie A season has finished.

He joined Napoli as a 15-year-old, scored 114 goals in 416 appearances and has been club captain since 2019.
