CANELLAS REJECTED BARCELONA’S OFFER, BUT HANSEN IS THINKING ABOUT IT
After the yesterday’s news that Nikola Karabatic is leaving Barcelona, the club has started looking for his substitute and the main candidates have been Joan Canellas from THW Kiel and Mikkel Hansen from PSG.
The Spanish newspaper Marca in today’s issue revealed that Barcelona has already received a negative response from Canellas, because he was happy in THW Kiel. Mikkel Hansen was supposedly ready to hear Barcelona’s conditions and to negotiate. Hansen would practically return to Barcelona, because he had already played in the Catalan team in the period from 2008 to 2010.
Marca also noted that Barcelona was interested in Marko Kopljar’s services, and radio Catalunya extended this information by saying that Kopljar has already arranged a three-year contract with the Catalan giant. Kopljar plays on the same position as Kire Lazarov does and it is a matter of question how much time he will receive on the court in his new club.
