Albert Pujols waves to fans during a celebration of the St. Louis Cardinals' World Series title in St. Louis on Oct. 30. A person familiar with Pujols' negotiations says that the three-time NL MVP has agreed to a 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal had not been announced.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have reached a deal with former Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Yahoo reported the contract value could be worth up to $260 million and is the second or third highest in baseball history.

Pujols' deal with the Angels includes a no-trade clause, ESPN reports. It could have been an issue in his talks with the Miami Marlins.

The Los Angeles Angels have also posted news of the deal on their website.
