Mathis is one of the most promising stars in the MLS and his performances in the World Cup have seen his value rise to circa £3.5 million.
"It's disappointing that the MLS won't even start a dialogue," said his agent Craig Sharon.
"In most cases a club takes into consideration the desires of the player," Sharon went on. "But unless something changes Clint will be left with no option but to play out the last 18 months of his contract and make himself available on a free transfer."
Mathis has always insisted he is happy in the MLS but feels a move abroad would aid his development in the long-term.
"This (the MLS) is the only place I have developed and I was able to play in a World Cup," Mathis told Football 365.
"I also think I can develop [in Europe], playing at a high level every day. I probably could develop better over there, but I don't know.
"I have to see if they [MLS] are willing to take care of me here. Then going to Europe is something I'd sacrifice for our league to grow, continue to prosper and to become more respected."
