Penrith centre Paul Momirovski could be on the move again after being given permission by the Panthers to find a new home for 2022.
While he still has a year remaining on his Penrith contract, the Grand Final winner’s manager has reportedly been in talks with rival clubs about a move for some time now.
Although Penrith are hopeful of keeping him, The Sydney Morning Herald believes they won’t stand in his way if he can acquire a more lucrative deal elsewhere.
As a result, The Daily Telegraph’s David Riccio says three clubs are well in the mix to secure his services.
“This flared up the week before the Grand Final,” Riccio said on SEN 1170 Drive with Joel and Fletch.
“Momirovski’s manager was absolutely desperate to keep talks with clubs quiet until the Grand Final was played.
“No distractions whatsoever were needed for Momirovski, that was the call, but it has been going on for two-three weeks now.
“Roosters, Warriors and Manly are all interested, and the Sharks were also originally interested.”
Riccio believes the centre could attract offers north of $300,000 a year, and he believes he could be headed back to the club that he made his NRL debut at in 2018.
“The asking price is around $300,000 to $350,000 for Momirovski, so the Sharks won’t go down that path,” Riccio said.
“As you said, given his ties to the Roosters previously, he’s had a stint there, I think he could end up back at Bondi.”
A move for Momirovski will mean he’ll play at his fifth club in five years.
