England and Leicester Tigers centre Manu Tuilagi was spotted visiting Racing 92’s facilities last week to discuss a potential move at the end of the season, and it appears those negotiations went rather well.
The powerful centre will leave Leicester Tigers at the end of the season according to RugbyPass having agreed a lucrative contract with the Parisian side that will see him move to the Top 14 after the Rugby World Cup (or sooner if he doesn’t make Eddie Jones’ squad).
The deal for the 27-year-old is said to be worth in excess of £2.5 million over three years and will likely bring an end to his international career due to England’s policy that sees them refuse to select players that ply their trade outside the Gallagher Premiership.
Tuilagi has recently formed an excellent partnership with Henry Slade in midfield for England but that pairing looks like it will be short-lived as the Tigers man gets set to pack his bags and move to France.
