The opener of the XV de la Rose, Owen Farrell, courted by several teams, should extend his adventure at the Sarries and receive almost a million euros per season.
Several leading clubs courted Owen Farrell, who was coming to the end of his contract with Saracens at 30.
But, according to information from the English specialized site Ruck.co.uk, the international opener Owen Farrell will extend his contract for three seasons with the club from the suburbs of London. The announcement is expected to be made within a week.
And the captain of the XV de la Rose should hit the jackpot since his salary would be estimated at 800,000 pounds per year or 965,000 euros. A jackpot for a player his age who previously earned £750,000 each season.
However, this remains less than his teammate at the Sarries, the second-line Majo Itoje, who earns him 850,000 pounds a year.
Pollard and Piutau are the highest-paid
According to information from Rugby Pass, the highest-paid players on the rugby planet are South African opening half Handre Pollard (who will leave Montpellier at the end of the season) and New Zealand full-back Charles Piutau (Bristol), who receive one million pounds a year, or €1.12 million.
Arriving at Saracens in 2008, Owen Farrell has one of the finest records in English rugby, with three European Cups (2016, 2017, and 2019) and five League titles (2011, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019).
With the XV de la Rose, he scored 1,036 points and won the Six Nations Tournament three times, in 2016 (Grand Slam), 2017, and 2020.
The opening half, moved to the center when he was lined up with George Ford, was also a finalist at the last World Cup in Japan, lost to the Springboks.
