On the other hand, Philadelphia is preparing another offer for Machado, which should get closer to his reported asking price of $300 million. Long-term deals are an age-old debate, Svrluga reasoned, but what matters is how young the player is at the time of the signing.

Nationals fans still see plenty of risk, however, and they weren't shy about letting Svrluga know they think the Nats should let Harper walk. He said that the Yankees, White Sox, Phillies, and a potential fourth team are in the bidding and looking for an answer soon.

According to Bruce Levine of 670 Sports in Chicago, "Manny Machado is believed to be nearing a decision this week", and the White Sox appear to have the edge.

Bryce Harper could end up heading back to the Nationals.

West Ham reportedly have Bournemouth's Callum Wilson on their radar and he could become a priority if they lose Marko Arnautovic . He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles. 'It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China '.

Moustakas is represented by Scott Boras, who also represents Bryce Harper.

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.

Both teams with money to spend and ready to compete right now. Meanwhile, the Nationals have reportedly upped their offer.

A couple weeks after trading for Machado's brother-in-law, they reached a one-year, $4 million agreement with 33-year-old outfielder Jon Jay, according to USA Today, on Monday night.
