Negotiations have been reportedly taking place for the last three months, but now Manly have lost partience.
Australian media reports that Cherry-Evans’s management were given until lunchtime on Monday to decide one way or the other about the offer.
When no answer was forthcoming, the Sea Eagles withdrew their multi-million dollar offer to the Kangaroos star.
“It’s obvious what we’ve done – we’ve set a deadline for a reason and we are now too close to round one,” Sea Eagles chief executive Joe Kelly said.
“We will renew our conversations at some stage in the future.”
