New York Yankees' second baseman Robinson Cano is demanding a record breaking $305m contract on the free agency market, reports ESPN.

The Yankees are not close to an agreement with the 30-year-old and it is thought Cano is willing to accept the biggest offer regardless of where it comes from.

The five-time All Star player has said that his future is up in the air but is ready to take his time over a decision.

"If we don't make it to the playoffs, I want to take my time, go on vacation and relax," Cano told ESPN. "Then I want to sit down with my family and decide what we gonna do."

Cano is expected to draw a record breaking offer for a second baseman, having averaged 38 home runs and 102 RBIs over a five year span.

Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers is the current highest earner, having signed a deal worth $15m a year over a five-year period.

Cano, who leads the Yankees batting statistics with 27 homes and 106 RBIs this season admitted that although he loves playing for the Yankees, last night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays could be his last appearance.

"I haven't decided anything yet," said Cano. "But don't get me wrong. I love this team, you know?

"Oh, yeah, who knows? Who knows what's going to happen," he said. "I'm just enjoying being here, and I'm going to enjoy the last day, being here with all these guys. Nobody said I'm leaving; nobody said I'm staying. I haven't decided anything yet. Let's see what happens after the World Series."
