What if Frank McCourt sold OM? At the end of last week, the rumor started again as the Marseille club went through a more than delicate period. As is often the case when it comes to discussing a possible buyer, it is Saudi Arabia that comes up first. And in the event of a takeover of OM, the Saudis would like to take Zinédine Zidane with them. The former Real Madrid coach would have even agreed to join his favorite club.
LOON keeps making the news. Over the past two weeks, the Marseille club has caused a lot of ink to flow between the resignation of Marcelinothe arrival of Gennaro Gattuso but also the false start of Pablo Longoria. To this overloaded news has recently been added the return of a potential takeover of the club by Saudi Arabia. The Saudi project would already be drawn up and Zinedine Zidane should be at the heart of it.
Zidane at OM with Saudi Arabia?
The bombshell was dropped last Friday. According to information from France Bleu Provence, Zinedine Zidane would have agreed to join loon. Despite everything, its arrival is conditional on several elements. The first, to what Frank McCourt agrees to give up his property because Zizou will only come with Saudi Arabia. Indeed, the 98 world champion would have been won over by the Saudi proposal. In the event of a club buyout, Zidane would become general manager of loon and he would have a budget of €300M for his first transfer window. The rumor made a big noise in the Marseille city which began to dream again in a very sad period for it, between the poor results of loon and the various settling of scores that bereave him. Jerome Rothen is excited about the project.
“Of course I want them to put Zidane on the bench”
The former player PSG made it known in his show Rothen S’Enflamme on RMC. “This Zizou fantasy at OM will always exist, especially when there is a crisis within the club. Whether the supporters want the club to be bought by a billionaire or Saudi Arabia, I understand. As much as I was not necessarily for his arrival at PSG, but if OM were to be bought tomorrow, of course I want them to put Zidane on the bench,” he declared. It remains to be seen if Frank McCourt will agree to sell loon.
