D.C. United has signed MLS Rookie of the Year Andy Najar to a new multi-year contract according to the club. The first D.C. United Academy product signed by the club as a homegrown player, Najar made just shy of $60,000 last year according to the MLS Players Union. Allthough details of the contract were, as usual, kept confidential, Najar probably saw a $20-25K pay raise for this coming year plus some incentives for performance. I would also expect that there will be some other bonuses and compensation should Najar get transferred overseas.
