Montpellier are hoping to tempt CJ Stander after offering the Ireland international €840,000 a year, according to the Irish Examiner.
The back-rower’s contract expires at the end of the season and, although the IRFU are confident of keeping hold of the South African-born player, the French club are looking to entice Stander with a huge offer.
Negotiations are ongoing between the 27-year-old and the governing body, with the Examiner claiming that they have tabled a bid which includes a basic salary of €400,000 per year, but Montpellier’s proposal could complicate matters.
While Ireland were dealt a blow with the departure of Simon Zebo, Peter O’Mahony and Tadhg Furlong signed new contracts last week and Munster will hope that Stander follows suit.
My opinion….for what is worth….TAKE THE MONEY CJ
