Transfer Rumours: French club willing to offer Beauden Barrett richest deal in rugby history

A French club is willing to make All Blacks star Beauden Barrett the highest paid player in world rugby, according to a report from the Daily Telegraph.

The Australian newspaper reported that a French Top 14 club is prepared to offer Barrett a £2m a year deal after next year’s World Cup.



The deal is reportedly worth a whopping £6m over three years.

When contacted by the Daily Telegraph, Barrett’s agent Warren Alcock refused to comment on any prospective deal to send the star playmaker to France.

“We couldn’t make any comment on that,” Alcock said.

The move would more than triple Barrett’s salary which is believed to be £500,000 per season under his current contract with NZ Rugby and the Hurricanes.
