All Blacks: Kieran Read reportedly offered NZ$2m by Racing 92

All Blacks captain Kieran Read has reportedly been offered a contract worth NZ$2m to play in France after next year's Rugby World Cup.

French rugby paper Midi Olympique reports French giants Racing 92 have offered Read €1.2 million (NZ$2m) a season to join the club at the conclusion of next year's tournament.

The report also suggests Read has two offers from the UK to consider and that Racing would have to sacrifice three big-name players to make room for him financially.

If Read accepts the deal, he would become one of the highest-paid players in the world.

The 33-year-old told NZME earlier this month he would resume his playing career overseas after the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Former All Blacks winger Joe Rokocoko and lock Dominic Bird are currently contracted to the Paris-based club, while the likes of Daniel Carter, Chris Masoe and Casey Laulala have also played there.

Read has played 118 tests for the All Blacks between 2008-18 and took over the captaincy when Richie McCaw retired, after winning the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
