You'd think turning the calendar to a new year would have provided additional clarity to the Bryce Harper situation, but that's far from the case.

How much money will Bryce Harper and Manny Machado get?

"The White Sox have formally offered Machado a long-term contract proposal, four persons with direct knowledge of the offer told USA TODAY Sports".

According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, via MLB.com, the Nationals representatives and Harper have met on numerous occasions over the winter with a source close to the player reportedly predicting that the player's free agency could stretch into February.

The free agent shortstop indicated he would make a decision on his future in 2019 after completing a three-city visit to meet his main suitors - the Chicago White Sox, the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies - in December, prior to the holidays. Nightengale also said the White Sox have yet to make Harper a contract offer while staying in "constant contact" with the biggest name on the free-agent market.

Believed to be closer to $200 million than $300 million, the proposal may not be enough to keep Machado from entertaining other offers.

Machado - who the team met with two weeks ago - remains Philadelphia's primary focus, according to Salisbury, although several teams have been linked to the superstar infielder, including the New York Yankees. Now that Philly has secured the bullpen piece they have been looking for, they are expected to turn their full attention to both Harper and Machado. It will be interesting to see whether or not the Sox land him, knowing that they have also been "all-in" on Harper as well.

Just because the Phillies appear to be getting a meeting with Harper doesn't necessarily mean their chances of landing the star outfield are going to increase because once again, the competition is high between other teams as well. "Maybe even into spring training".
