The city of Montreal may have taken a big step towards getting a big-league team again.

A group of investors in Montreal has reportedly met the conditions imposed by the league to bring a team back to the city, according to The Canadian Press, citing an unnamed source.

"I can tell you we are no longer looking for investors and that we believe we have all the ingredients to be able to welcome a team, be it an expansion or one that already exists," the source said.

Montreal has not had a major-league club since the Expos left for Washington in 2004 and became the Nationals.

Fans in Montreal awaiting a new hometown side to cheer for may have to wait, however, as Commissioner Rob Manfred has been on record saying he does not anticipate adding new franchises to MLB until the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics resolve their stadium situations.
