New York Yankees convince Cano to lower $310m demands

After three consecutive days of talks the New York Yankees finally convinced Robinson Cano to shift from his astronomical contract demands, reports CBSSports.

The second baseman is on the free agency market at the moment but has yet to enter serious discussion with any other franchise except the Yankees.

He had rejected the Yankees original offer of a seven year deal worth around $161m, instead holding out for a record breaking 10 year deal worth $310m.

The Yankees have said they have no intention of offering anyone, let alone Cano, that kind of deal and have continued in their summer business plan regardless, signing Brian McCann on a five year, $85m deal.

With Cano yet to get a serious offer from another organisation, he has decided to lower his demands, albeit only very slightly.

After three intense sessions, it appears there is still a wide gap between both parties and negotiations look to be going for the long haul when they resume after Thanksgiving.

With the Yankees chasing more big names, such as Carlos Beltran and their well-known desire to get their wage bill under $189m, the longer Cano holds out, the less likely he will be playing at the Yankees Stadium next season.
