Salford owner Dr Marwan Koukash has confirmed that French scrum-half Theo Fages has requested a transfer from the club.
But anyone who wants to acquire the 20-year-old’s services would need to pay big money.
“Theo did hand in a transfer request,” said Koukash.
“But if anybody wants to buy him, it would have to be for a world-record transfer.
“He is the hottest property in Super League.”
