The Chicago White Sox had been interested in acquiring Manny Machado this offseason, but apparently that won't be happening. 

According to multiple reports, the superstar has signed a deal with the San Diego Padres.

The news was reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan, citing league sources. MLB's Mark Feinsand also reported the deal was for 10 years and $300 million with an opt out clause after his fifth season. Such a deal would mark the biggest free-agent contract in history, Feinsand wrote. 

The White Sox had reportedly offered Machado a contract, but it’s unclear how much money it included.

The free agent infielder hit 37 home runs last season and drove in 107 RBI, and he would have been a massive upgrade to their offense.
