England international Manu Tuilagi could be set for talks with Sale Sharks in a deal that would see him remain in the Premiership following his Leicester Tigers exit, according to a report in the Times.
Tuilagi is one of five contract rebels who were unable to agree terms with Leicester this week after being asked to take a further pay cut of 25% as the club looks to balance their books in the wake of the ongoing financial crisis that has wreaked havoc on sport.
Sale would require permission from Leicester to push through with a deal with Tuilagi still technically contracted until the end of next season but the Tigers are also technically in breach of his contract for forcing a pay cut.
The report adds that there is “no way back” for Tuilagi at Leicester at this stage.
