Superstar free agent Bryce Harper doesn't yet have a home for the 2019 season, but the market is getting tighter.

The Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox, long linked to Harper, are reportedly both willing to give the 26-year-old the 10-year (or longer) contract he is seeking, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

And if the terms aren't to his liking, Harper will wait. He's apparently willing to hold out into February before signing a deal, a source told Passan.

Their willingness to offer 10 or more years could spell the end of the Los Angeles Dodgers' involvement. Previously linked to the former MVP, the Dodgers are reportedly not interested in signing him long term.

There are conflicting reports, however, about whether or not the White Sox will go 10 years with an offer for either Harper or infielder Manny Machado. The team won't offer either player more than seven years, a source told Bruce Levine of 670 The Score.

Harper has also reportedly been meeting with representatives from his former club, the Washington Nationals, leaving open the possibility of re-signing. The Nationals, however, are not expected to offer more than the 10-year, $300-million contract they offered before the end of last season.
