Marseille target Ronaldo, Zidane amidst new magt takeover

Marseille dreams double swoop for Ronaldo and Zidane

French side Marseille, are targeting a double swoop of Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo, and Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane after their inevitable takeover.

The 1993 UEFA Champions League winners, and recent runners-up of Ligue 1, are about to have new owners this summer.

With French businessman Mourad Boudjellal leading a consortium of Middle Eastern companies to buy Marseille for €700 million, the former Champions League winners want to return to the ways of old when they dominated French football.

With Marseille coming 12 points behind Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain, the team needs some reinforcements, and Boudjellal wants to bring back a hometown hero in the form of Zinedine Zidane.

“But what would be better than bringing back a local lad? Zinedine Zidane? The future will tell us.”

The potential new face of Marseille also said he dreams to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to the Stade Velodrome:

“And a player that I will never forget is Cristiano Ronaldo. I like respect and discipline. He embodies that…Do I dream of signing him for Marseille? Everything is possible in life.
