Mike Trout: Los Angeles Angels star to agree richest deal in sport with $430 million deal

Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.

(CNN)Mike Trout, one of the most sought-after baseball players of his generation, looks set to agree to a 12-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels worth a stunning $430 million, according to multiple reports.

The deal, should it be confirmed, would net the outfielder $36 million a year and be the most expensive contract in Major League Baseball (MLB) history, as well as the biggest in sports.
It would trump the $330 million 13-year deal the Philadelphia Phillies and Bryce Harper agreed last month and boxer Canelo Alvarez's $365 million 11-fight arrangement with sports broadcaster DAZN.
