Morgan Parra, who has still not responded to Clermont’s extension offer, could leave Auvergne next summer for the capital. Stade Français, not interested at first, could indeed be tempted by the 32-year-old scrum-half.
What if the future of Morgan Parra (32 years old) went through the capital? At the end of his contract in Clermont, the international scrum-half with 71 caps could continue his career at the Stade Français. To believe our colleagues from Olympic noon, the Pink Soldiers could finally review their position and make an offer for the former number 9 of Bourgoin-Jallieu. Originally, the former Top 14 red lantern has since risen in the rankings (Stade Français is tenth after eight days of the championship) did not seem to bear any real interest for the player who landed in Auvergne in 2009. But is it? the excellent start to the season for Parra, who became in particular the new record holder for the number of successful kicks in a row with 48 attempts consecutively converted (he stopped last Saturday in the match won by a river score by ASM against in Pau at home, after nine months without the slightest failure!), or the closeness between the trainer of the Pink Soldiers Gonzalo Quesada and the native of Metz – the two men know each other very well? There is always that the Parisian club would now be interested in the double champion of France (2010 and 2017), also European champion in 2019 (European Challenge).
Clermont made a proposal to Parra… No action, for now
An offer for Parra could therefore very quickly spring from the Clermont-Ferrand fax machine and land on the office of the president of the ASM for his emblematic scrum-half who also has an impressive track record on the international level, with this (his only) success in the Tournament. of the 6 Nations with the Blues in 2010 and this World Cup final (again the only one for him) lost in 2011 with the XV of France against the All Blacks (8-7). The person, meanwhile, has received a proposal from the ASM to extend the adventure in Auvergne, where he is currently playing his twelfth season. Unfortunately for the Jaunards, there is still no follow-up. And for good reason, since after twelve years at the club, Parra could decide to look elsewhere, and to put his bags in the capital.
