Prospective new Marseille owner Mohamed Ayachi Ajroudi hints that he could attempt to bring Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane to the Stade Velodrome.

Mohamed Ayachi Ajroudi, who is allegedly in talks with current Marseille owner Frank McCourt over a takeover, has hinted that he will attempt to bring Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane to the Stade Velodrome should he purchase the club.

The French-Tunisian businessman is said to be locked in negotiations with McCourt over a possible deal, and he has suggested that Juventus attacker Ronaldo could be a target for the Ligue 1 club if an agreement can be reached.

"A player I'll never forget is Cristiano Ronaldo," Ajroudi told El Figaro. "I like respect and discipline and he embodies that. Do I dream about him at Marseille? Everything is possible in life. It's a dream that excites me."

The 35-year-old has been in excellent form for the Old Lady during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 32 times in 40 appearances in all competitions, including 28 in 28 Serie A outings.

Meanwhile, when asked about a possible move for Real Madrid boss Zidane, he responded: "We'll see what happens in the future."

Andre Villas-Boas has been the manager of Les Phoceens since last summer, winning 18, drawing nine and losing just six of his 33 games in charge of the Ligue 1 team.
