While it is hard to say with confidence if either report is accurate, the White Sox have made their interest to Manny Machado known throughout the offseason and have the financial flexibility to offer a substantial deal. He along with Bryce Harper are the two most wanted players this winter with a number of franchises pulling out all the stops to land them.

The White Sox are making their push for Machado, but Nightengale mentions that friends believe Machado will sign with NY if the offers are in the same ballpark. The same applies to Bryce Harper, which put a dent in beliefs they would each sign contracts near $400 million. It is clear now that if the players are following the money, they will wind up in Philadelphia.

For what it's worth, ESPN's Jeff Passan - one of the most respected Major League Baseball insiders - reported on Wednesday that the White Sox are willing to go 10 years.

However, it was reported earlier that the Phillies and the White Sox are ready to spend big and give Machado and Harper their desired 10-year deals worth over $300 million. The Los Angeles Dodgers have been connected to Harper but are believed to be unlikely to re-sign Machado.

If successful, it would mark Congo's first democratic transition after decades marked by authoritarian rule, coups and civil war. An EU spokesperson called Congo's order "completely unjustified" and counterproductive ahead of "very challenging elections".

Does it make the White Sox a lock to sign Machado?

The Phillies have always been connected to Harper and are expected to be "a little bit stupid" with how they spend their money this offseason, team president John Middleton told Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports in November.

For the Dodgers and Harper, there have been all kinds of rumors about how close they might be to a deal.
