The Manly Sea Eagles has signed young gun five-eighth Latu Fainu to a contract that could see him become the highest-paid player yet to play in the NRL.

The 16-year-old inked a mammoth four-year deal with the Manly Sea Eagles yesterday.

If he hits the performance targets in his contract extension, the teen pivot will earn a seven-figure amount during that period.

Moses Suli made history as the game’s highest-paid teen when he signed a three-year, $1.3 million contract extension in 2017 and the Sun-Herald can reveal Fainu will outstrip that figure.

Rival clubs including Parramatta, the Warriors and the Dolphins were lining up with their cheque books in a bid to prize Fainu from the northern beaches.
