The Yankees appear willing to enhance their latest $45 million, three-year offer to retain the iconic Yankee, but are said to be unwilling to match his previous salary on a deal of at least three years.

The Yankees’ next offer is expected to be for a couple million more per year, so perhaps in the $50 million range for three years.
