Parramatta club captain Tim Mannah says no man is bigger than the Eels - even his superstar best mate Jarryd Hayne.

Mannah had lunch with Hayne on Monday and said his code-hopping former teammate had asked him when the Eels were going to make him an offer.

Mannah, though, said while it may be disappointing for fans that Hayne won't be returning to Parramatta anytime soon, the Eels were intent on building a club and team "sustainable for the future" rather than splashing out big money for one player.
