Barrett offered biggest Rugby deal ever!

According to a report by Sydney's Telegraph a French Top 14 side have offered All Blacks flyhalf, Beauden Barrett, a deal that would make him the highest paid rugby player in the world.

The report stated that a French Top 14 club are willing to pay $3.4 million a year for Barrett's services, a sum that would see Barrett leapfrog Dan Carter as rugby biggest earner.

Carter currently pulls in $2.83m a year with French club Racing 92.

Barrett's agent Warren Alcock refused to make comment when contacted by Daily Telegraph. Barrett is off contract after next year's World Cup, and the new proposed deal would see him make upwards of $10m over three years.

Barrett became the youngest player to reach 1000 Super Rugby points against the Bulls two weeks ago and is set to play his 100th Super Rugby match against the Crusaders this weekend.

He currently has represented the All Blacks 62 times and has claimed two World Rugby Player of the Year Awards.
