Of course, this won't come without a hefty investment considering Harper reportedly declined a massive deal from the Nationals before becoming a free agent.
"The free agent outfielder, touted to be more popular than the Liberty Bell, looks to be headed to Philadelphia, the city of Brotherly Love", USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale wrote Wednesday.
At the general managers meetings on Tuesday, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo disclosed that the team had engaged in talks with Harper's agent, Scott Boras.
In the meantime, Harper will continue to field offers from other teams in hopes of landing a record-setting deal.
While St. Louis barely missed the playoffs this past season, they're definitely looking for a boost offensively, and Harper could be the guy to get the job done and further make the Cards a threat in the National League.
According to a report from ESPN's Buster Olney, Harper won't be joining the Bronx Bombers.
Yet the Las Vegas native who grew up a Yankees fan and dreamed of calling the Bronx his home is going to carry a hefty price tag.
"He's shown the type of player he is and now he's a grizzled veteran", Rizzo said. Though the Nationals weren't able to save their season after the All-Star Break, Harper played at an MVP caliber following the midsummer classic, slashing.300/.434/.538 with 11 home runs, 46 RBIs and 52 walks in the second-half of the 2018 season. "He has done a lot in the game already, and he is just scratching the surface". Nobody knows what this offseason holds, " he said. "But I'm uncomfortable with the statement that we're a better team without him". "I think we have a good strategy in place, a good plan in place, and we have started to begin that process and we will see where it takes us".
