Steyn's agent, Gerrie Swart, confirmed to the Volksblad newspaper that Steyn is considering a return to South Africa.
"We're currently looking at options and there are possible shifts back to South Africa," said Swart, who is currently in France discussing future plans with the Bok centre.
Swart did not reveal what unions in South Africa are after Steyn's services.
Steyn, who has been out of action since injuring his shoulder in South Africa's World Cup group-stage win over Samoa, could return to the playing field as early as January.
"They (Racing Metro) are busy rehabilitating him. He has already regained full use of his shoulder and doesn't feel any pain. So things are at this stage developing better that what we initially expected," said Swart.
