Storm superstar Cameron Munster faces a huge dilemma worth nearly $2 million as he assesses his future in the game.
Munster terminates his contract with Melbourne at the end of next season and the club would offer him around $750,000 per season to sign a new contract – less than he currently is.
But the Dolphins, desperate to find a big-name player to lead their new franchise, are reportedly preparing a deal worth up to $1.2 million a year.

Over a four-year span, that means the 27-year-old center will sacrifice around $1.8 million to stay with the Storm.
The Dolphins have already signed three forwards from Storm – the Bromwich brothers, Jesse and Kenny, and Queensland Origin rower Felise Kaufusi.

But they see Munster as the jewel in the crown and want to make him their main man – a player who will inspire other quality individuals to move to Redcliffe as well.
The Storm are just as keen on keeping their star playmaker, especially after losing a host of big names over the past 12 months.

“We’ve had informal talks and Cameron has indicated that he would like to stay with us,” Storm hiring manager Paul Bunn told Wide World of Sports.
“But we know his manager (former Blues Origin star Braith Anasta) is chasing other clubs.
“We’ll just have to see how it goes.”
