Daniel Ricciardo is in high demand according to German newspaper Sport BildThe Red Bull driver has been the subject of a $20-million per year offer by McLaren. 

According to the Guardian, that would triple the Australian's current salary. Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko says "McLaren offers him more every week."

The 28 year old will become a free agent at the end this season and McLaren have been linked with the Monaco GP winner for the past few months as speculation grows about Ricciardo's future. 

If the Australian were to accept the money McLaren offers him, it's still way behind the salaries of championship leader Sebastian Vettel and reigning champion Lewis Hamilton who earn around $60-million and $50-million a year. 

Ricciardo heads into this weekend's French GP in fourth position in the championship, as the race returns to France after ten years off the race calendar.
