Phillies rumors: Expect Manny Machado decision in the next week

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

The Phillies continue to negotiate with Machado, and their desire to sign Harper would only increase if Machado signs with the Yankees or White Sox.

The Phillies and White Sox are both also interested in Harper while the Dodgers could be another possible landing spot, according to the report.

The pace of the Major League Baseball offseason has gotten harder and harder to predict, though there is a report from The Score's Bruce Levine in Chicago that Machado's decision could come within a week.

Depending on how things go in Las Vegas on Saturday when the two parties meet, only time will tell when it comes to seeing whether Harper ends up being one of those missing pieces for Philadelphia.

Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal.

West Ham target Callum Wilson could be long-term solution
Michael Owen is expecting Arsenal to have problems when they take on West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime. It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him.

While a decision may be coming soon, it's still unclear who has the lead in the bidding.

The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's mom as assistant general manager.

The primary reason the Phils have prioritized Machado this offseason is that he's a difference-maker offensively and also defensively at third base.

Levine pointed out that Philadelphia is likely willing to go 10 years for Machado, several more years than the White Sox are willing to. As far as the value of the contract, it's unknown, but it is believed Machado could receive between $25-$28 million annually, Levine adds. At that annual salary, no one will reach his $300 million asking price.
