Striker Bradley Wright-Phillips is in talks to extend his contract with the Red Bulls, according to Metro New York.
A source said the two-time Major League Soccer scoring champion is negotiating with New York to extend his contract past this season.
BWP is the only player in league history to secure a pair of 20-goal seasons, having captured the Golden Boot in 2014 (27 goals) and last year (24).
A Designated Player, the 32-year-old Wright-Phillips earned a base salary of $650,000 in 2016, and a guaranteed salary of $715,000, according to the MLS Players Union. His current contract runs out after this season.
He recently received his green card, meaning the English-born forward doesn’t count as an international player on the team roster.
