I think there is a version for 14.04 available:

~/ > apt-cache policy skype
skype:
  Installiert:           (keine)
  Installationskandidat: 4.3.0.37-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
  Versionstabelle:
     4.3.0.37-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 0
        500 http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ trusty/partner amd64 
Packages

Of course you need the canonical partner repo. And of course I haven't 
tested it either.
