The 29-year-old, who left Leicester Tigers this month after failing to agree terms on an amended contract, joins the outfit until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Director of rugby Steve Diamond said: "After discussions on Friday, all parties -- Leicester Tigers, Manu Tuilagi and Sale Sharks -- agreed that the player was a free agent and was able to enter into negotiations with another club.
"Manu will be a fantastic commercial and playing addition to our squad and I am looking forward to seeing him join up with the lads at Carrington this week." Injuries have limited Samoan-born Tuilagi to 44 Tests, including one for the Lions, in an international career dating back to 2011.
