Melbourne Storm star to become world’s highest paid player if he makes surprise switch

Cameron Munster has been at the heart of a tug of war for some time.

Former Great Britain and England boss Wayne Bennett has pursued the halfback who is in the form of his life at present for some time hoping to make the five-eighth the centre-piece of his new club The Dolphins who will join the NRL next year with England centre Oliver Gildart one of the men set to feature in their squad.

Still looking for that marquee man, Melbourne have ensured that if will not join the Dolphins in 2023 even launching an official complaint against the club.

However, the saga is not over yet with the Dolphins prepared to make Munster the world’s highest paid player in a deal that would commence in 2024.

This is according to reports down under from the Daily Mail and Courier Mail who say the Dolphins are prepared to pay him $1.3 million a year in a deal that would cost the club $5 million straight off the bat.

The Dolphins cannot officially make this play until November 1st but Munster’s agent Braith Anasta has confirmed the interest but insists no talks have taken place just yet.

Munster is a former NRL Champion and has been treated as the successor to the holy trinity at Melbourne of Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith doing a fine job in filling the void the trio left.

However, his time with the Storm could come to an early end if this deal comes off making him the world’s highest paid rugby league player.
