We'll gladly sign him for 8 years if he comes at 12 M.

Problem is he wants 20 M for that much, and it's unlikely he will be worth that much for the last 3 years. Now if he would agree to making the last few years a team option, then there's something to think about.

Even though I'm on the bring Fielder bandwagon, 8 years is too long. Most I'll do for 20 is 6 years without adding team options.
