Reports in Australia claim Canterbury Bulldogs are preparing the biggest player deal in the history of the sport in a bid to land superstar Latrell Mitchell.
The 22-year-old, who was controversially left out of the NSW Blues squad for Origin II, could be offered a stunning 10-year, $11 million contract by the 2004 premiers.
New NRL rules mean Mitchell would be free to sign for the Bulldogs in November despite his current deal running until the end of 2020.
The Roosters are willing to pay huge money to keep the world’s best centre, but whether they can match the Bulldogs offer is still unknown.
North Queensland Cowboys forward Jason Taumalolo signed a 10-year, $10 million deal in 2017; the most lucrative contract in the game to date.
However should the rumoured offer to Mitchell prove to be true, Taumalolo’s deal would be surpassed in the ever-growing financial standing of the NRL.
