Racing 92 have issued a veiled denial amidst intense speculation over England and Saracens flyhalf Owen Farrell’s potential move to the French Top 14 club.
Farrell is reportedly on the brink of joining Top 14 leaders, signaling a possible end to his illustrious Test career. With his Sarries contract expiring in June, the 32-year-old’s speculated three-year deal would make him ineligible for international duty, having opted for a break from England duties in November.
While Racing, led by former England boss Stuart Lancaster, denied any agreement, a statement on their website intriguingly acknowledged ongoing speculations regarding Farrell.
“Racing 92 is regularly under the aegis of numerous speculations concerning movements within its workforce,” it stated. “We are delighted with the appeal of our club Racing 92. However, we deny any agreement concerning the English player Owen Farrell.”
