Are the leaders of PSG handball finally holding their rare pearl? The player capable of making people forget the cruel absence of Nikola Karabatic? Deprived of his master to play for many months – injured on October 17, the eldest Karabatic underwent an operation at the end of October on the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee – the club of the capital would be, according to the Danish media TV2 Sport, on the point of engaging the center-half Sebastian Skube (1.90 m, 90 kg).
The 33-year-old Slovenian international is currently playing in Denmark for Bjerringbro-Silkeborg. He is under contract there until 2021. But according to the Danish media, PSG have started negotiations and are ready to pay compensation for the transfer.
It must be said that time is running out for the seven-time champion club of France. Although undefeated in the league (leaders with 7 victories in as many days, including the last Saturday in Nîmes), Nedim Remili’s partners are suffering from the absence of their conductor. Especially on the European scene. Since the start of the season has already fallen three times in four Champions League games. Not really the rhythm of a cador.
Karabatic aims for the Tokyo Olympics
Above all, the club, which has great ambitions, participates at the end of December in the Final Four of the previous edition of the Champions League, competition which had been suspended in the spring due to the health crisis. The Parisians will challenge Barcelona in the semi-final on December 28 at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne (Germany). Whether it’s Skube or another player, PSG need to strengthen quickly.
Operated at the end of October, Nikola Karabatic (36), who had not missed an international meeting since the 2003 World Cup, is already forfeited for the World Cup in Egypt in January. He hopes to be back for the Tokyo Games next summer.
