D-Day set in three-way battle for million dollar halfback

There is a three-way battle to sign one of the world’s best halfbacks in Mitchell Moses.

Current club Parramatta Eels have already secured Dylan Brown long term and now want Moses to sign a deal worth around $1 million per year to stay according to Zero Tackle.

However, this may not be enough with offers of $1.4 million from Wests Tigers and $1.2 million from Canterbury Bulldogs.

Australian journalist Phil Rothfield shed light on the situation with Moses pushing the Eels to increase their offer and revealing Moses’ likely destination on the Big Sports Breakfast.

“Wests Tigers have gone very heavy with an offer of over $1.3 million per year, probably towards $1.4 million,” Rothfield said.

“The Bulldogs have gone in at $1.2 million and Parramatta have offered a little bit over $1 million per year for their gun playmaker.”

“I spoke to his manager late last week… he did say he was going to have a meeting with Parramatta this week. He is going to see if they can possibly increase their offer slightly,” Rothfield continued.

“He started in Parramatta juniors before he went to the Tigers all those years ago, there’s still hope for Eels fans.

“There’s talk that he’s on the verge of pulling the pin on Parramatta to accept one of these big money offers.

“If he goes, I think it will be to Canterbury.”

Now, Rothfield has confirmed that this battle for the number seven will likely end within the next six weeks.

“It’ll happen in the next six weeks and that’s a massive story. I’ve got a slight leaning towards him staying at Parramatta but that’s only my opinion,” he said.

“I genuinely don’t think Mitchell Moses knows yet what he’s going to do because if he did know what he’s going to do he’d make that decision and get rid of all of that media speculation.”
