The Beckham Rule

The MLS Board of Governors approved the designated player rule, which will allow teams to sign one player outside the salary cap
The “Beckham Rule” will allow each club to go above and beyond the league’s wage cap of £1.05 million per team to secure the services of one star player. Only £210,000 of the player’s annual wage will count towards the salary cap. More details here and another assessment of the same rule and of Freddy Adu’s two-week training session at Manchester United here.
