There has been a major update on the future of Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster.
The Dolphins, who will enter the NRL in 2023, have targeted Munster for the 2024 season and no rules have been broken according to the NRL.
However, the Dolphins are not allowed to try and lure Munster for 2023 unless he is given permission by Storm
Nine’s NRL reporter Ben Dobbin explained the situation to Triple M radio.
“At the moment (Munster) has been in some negotiations with the Storm about an extension. My understanding is he has only been offered $750,000 a year for a three-year extension. To put it in context, next year at the Storm he is on $1.2 million,” Dobbin said.
“So the Storm clearly don’t think Munster is worth the money the following year, hence that offer of $750,000.
“The Dolphins have gone on record, they’ve absolutely said this to me today, that if they could get Cameron Munster they are prepared to pay, for a three-year deal, $1 million a season.
“I think he’s worth $1 million to the Dolphins, but is he worth $1 million to the Storm? Clearly not.
“But he’s an Origin winner, he’s a premiership winner, he is a World Cup winner… he’s done everything in the game.”
But his form has been well documented in recent seasons and has been plagued by a number of off-field problems including the white-powder video scandal.
