All Blacks star Dan Carter is set to return to the French top flight after agreeing to join Racing Metro on a three-year deal after next year’s world Cup.

In joining the Paris club the 32-year-old New Zealand fly-half will become the sports highest paid player with a reported yearly salary of 1.5 million euros.

His move comes at another price – his international career – as New Zealand don’t select those playing abroad.

Although his international retirement after the World Cup was widely expected.

The World leading points scorer previously played in France on a seven month contract with Perpignan in 2008 but only played five games due to a ruptured achilles tendon.
