The Storm have reportedly tabled a three-year offer at $750,000 per season. It’s a significant haircut to the $1.2 million he is said to earnt next season — the final year of his current contract.
Meanwhile, it’s understood the Dolphins are willing to pay the Queensland representative $1 million a season.
“I don’t (know anything), I don’t know if anybody else does,” Bellamy said when asked if he’s got an update on Munster’s future.
“But I’m not quite sure where he is at the moment (with his decision) so I don’t want to get bogged down in what’s happening.
“He’ll make his decision when he’s ready, hopefully it will be to stay with us.
“I know the club, we all really want him to stay, it’s just a matter now of him being comfortable in when he wants to make a decision.”
