TOP 3 IRISH TARGETS . . .

Conor George

Conor George

In line for massive salary jump whether he stays in Ireland or opts for life in France. Amazingly, he is not on an 'international' contract with the IRFU, but that will surely change if he stays. Clermont are interested, but he might fancy a reunion with Jonathan Sexton in Paris.

Possible salary range in France: €400,000-€500,000.

JAMIE HEASLIP

Clermont are very interested in the No 8 and he has expressed an interest in playing outside Ireland in the past. He is currently the IRFU's highest-paid player. A club of Clermont's stature would dwarf any IRFU offer.

Possible salary range in France: €400,000-€500,000.

CONOR MURRAY

The scrum-half is highly coveted after a successful Lions tour. He was the stand-out half-back in Australia. There is confirmed interest from France and England. The sunny environs of France might well suit him for a couple of years.

Possible salary range in France: €400,000-€500,000.
