Melbourne’s hiring manager has claimed Cameron Munster wants to stay at the Storm but the five-eighth gun agent is “chasing other clubs” leaving the 27-year-old in limbo.

Munster have been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, with the Dolphins firmly pursuing the signing of the Australian when his contract with the Storm expires next year.

The newcomers bid $1.2 million for Munster’s services, while Melbourne offered around $750,000 a year.

This left Munster at a crossroads, with the playmaker deciding whether to pursue the lucrative offer from the Dolphins or stay with the Storm on a reduced salary and have a better chance of competing for the top prizes.

And according to Storm boss Paul Bunn, Munster wants to stay at the club but his agent – former Blues Origin star Braith Anasta – is “chasing other clubs”.

“We had informal talks and Cameron indicated that he would like to stay with us,” he said via 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.”

Elsewhere, Munster’s teammates have pulled out all the stops to convince the 27-year-old to stay, despite still keeping his cards close to his chest.

“I actually got stuck with him (Munster) but he hasn’t given me anything yet,” said Jahrome Hughes.

“I hope he can stay, that was one of the key parts of my stay, I hope he stays as well.”

“But he has to do what’s best for him with his young family.”

“He knows all the boys love him and want him to stay here,” added Harry Grant.

“He’s a player you really want to play with, you don’t want to play against him.

“I played him when I was at the Tigers and it wasn’t fun.”
