Cameron Munster reportedly makes decision on future
Melbourne star Cameron Munster has reportedly made a decision on his future – agreeing “in principle” to a new deal with the Storm.
Fairfax Chief Rugby League reporter Adrian Proszenko told Macquarie Sports Radio Nights that Munster is set to sign a new three-year contract with the club.
The 24-year-old – who is contracted for 2019 – was set to be the hottest property on the open market if he elected not to re-sign with the club.
But the Storm star’s decision is a big win for the club and Craig Bellamy after Billy Slater’s retirement, Cooper Cronk’s departure last season and the future of Cameron Smith still up in the air.
“Cameron Munster’s manager flew into Melbourne this week,” Proszenko said.
“They’ve negotiated for some time about an extension.
“I’ve been told that has been agreed to in principle.
“It’ll be a three-year deal, he’s already contracted for 2019.
“Cameron Munster was going to be the hottest guy on the open market once November 1 ticked over.
“He decided not to test his value on the open market and remain loyal to Melbourne which is an awesome coup.”
Munster – a premiership winner in 2017 – reportedly attracted interest from the Roosters about a potential move north in 2020, before deciding to re-sign with the Storm.
He has played 89 games since debuting in 2014 for the club and has represented Queensland and the Kangaroos.
