Daly Cherry-Evans

Daly Cherry-Evans has reneged on the Gold Coast Titans to sign a $10 million contract with the Manly Sea Eagles — by far the most lucrative deal in the game’s history.

The 26-year-old has agreed to a minimum six years in a similar open-ended contract to what AFL superstar Buddy Franklin signed with the Sydney Swans two years ago.

Daly Cherry-Evans will be at Manly for the rest of his career,” said a Manly source.

The deal is worth more than a $1 million a season which would be worth more than $10 million if he plays on till the age of other great halfbacks like Johnathan Thurston.
