Tigers' boss Geordan Murphy commented on the rumours in an interview with BBC Leicester Sport.
"If the Wolfpack want Manu then I am sure they can have a conversation with us,"
"But we don't want Manu leaving. He is world class and wants to be at Tigers."
Murphy is confident Tuilagi's links to the Tigers and area mean he will not be tempted to change his mind and switch codes to move to the Canadian side.
"Manu was offered more money to leave last year (to Racing 92) when the speculation was around," Murphy added.
"He has a family here. He is settled here and he feels like a Leicester player so I don't think he will going anywhere, anytime soon."
