The Manny Machado sweepstakes might be getting too pricey for the New York Yankees' liking.

Machado is expected to receive a contract in the range of $220 million-to-$270 million over "probably" no more than seven years, sources within the Yankees organization told Wallace Matthews of NY Daily News.

The Yankees continue to be linked to the 26-year-old - and he appears to prefer a move to the Bronx - but there is no guarantee the club will sign him if his deal reaches the top end of the seven-year, $270-million figure, according to Matthews.

New York seemingly already has a contingency plan, as it signed Troy Tulowitzki on Jan. 1, who is expected to play shortstop until Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Tulowitzki said he would like to play with Machado on the left side of New York's infield and it's been reported the signing won't stop the team from pursuing the four-time All-Star.

In addition to the Yankees, the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox are reportedly serious contenders in the Machado sweepstakes.
