Over the past few days, it was confirmed that, for failing to agree to a new contract, center Manu Tuilagi will not continue his career at Leicester Tigers.
Following a request from the English club for players to decrease their wages by 25%, the 29-year-old Samoan man who played 43 test matches with England declined.
Thus, the future of the talented back who played in the last two World Cups is uncertain. And the rumors have already started to circulate. According to the British media The Sun, the Toronto Wolfpack that competes in the Super League would have planned to go ahead for Tuilagi, something that he would have already tried to do during 2019.
If this were to pass from rumor to reality, the most salient result would be that in that case it would be the companion of the New Zealand star Sonny Bill Williams, and that together they would form a couple of centers, both unprecedented and formidable.
It should be noted that the former Blues player, among other teams, arrived in early 2020 and, at 58 caps, at 34 he signed an agreement that links him to the Toronto club for two years.
In its article, The Sun also revealed that the Canadian club “could go for the 29-year-old with a deal that would last until next summer.”
