Very ambitious for next season, the Stade Français would think of recruiting Matthieu Jalibert to accompany Baptiste Couilloud in the hinge after the 2023 World Cup.
Certainly, some names announced at the Stade Français next year have something to make fans dream of. While the duo, made up of Laurent Labit and Karim Ghezal, will take over from Gonzalo Quesada at the head of the Ile-de-France team next season, after the 2023 World Cup, a very attractive recruitment is gradually taking shape on the side. of the Jean Bouin Stadium. In effect, while he recently activated his exit clause in Lyon, Baptiste Couilloud is getting closer and closer to the capital. According to Midi Olympique, if the contacts are very advanced, the two clubs must still agree so that the arrival of the French scrum-half is recorded. At the SFP, the latter will notably share the position with Morgan Parra, who could eventually join the Parisian staff in 2024, and William Percillier, on loan to Vannes this year. As a result, Arthur Coville and James Hall seem to be on the way out.
Jalibert, the other big Parisian blow?
Moreover, still according to the bi-weekly specialized in rugby, the arrival of Joe Marchant is concluded. Currently with Harlequins, the English center will land in Paris and could be aligned with Olivier Klemenczak, close to leaving Racing 92 for his great rival, while Alex Arrate should sign in Castres. Finally, in search of a big blow at the opening, since the Argentinian Nicolas Sanchez will not be retained, the leaders of the SFP would push to obtain the signature of Matthieu Jalibert, despite the firm desire of Laurent Marti to keep his player. About the Bordeaux-Bègles player, “Parisian desires would be serious and assertive”, according to Midol. If this track fails, Stade Français could turn to Tristan Tedder, the opening half who is currently shining with Perpignan. However, it will be necessary to deal with a good competition in this file, Toulon and Castres would be in particular on the spot.
