McDonald offered 'life-changing' Wanderers switch

Scott McDonald could be set for an Australian return this year after being offered a 'life-changing' deal to join Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Daily Record reports the striker has been figuring out his future over the last week having signed a contract extension with his current club, Motherwell.

Despite Tony Popovic's men knocking on the door, the only way a deal can go through is if the Scottish club tear up the former Socceroo's contract.

Despite never scoring at international level, McDonald has a one goal in three games ratio, and would lead a Wanderers forward line in desperate need of some attacking emphasis.

It's not the first move this off-season that the 32-year-old striker has been linked to, after a proposed move to Championship side Hibernian broke down.

'Heart-to-heart' talks have reportedly been held with key members of management with the hopeful outcome of Motherwell releasing the player as a free agent to pursue a deal with Western Sydney.
