By Mike Parrott
French side Marseille are targeting a double swoop of Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo, and Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane after their inevitable takeover.
A sleeping giant in France wants to return with a bang it seems. The 1993 UEFA Champions League winners, and recent runners-up of Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille 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.
