A big project announced!
While rumors are once again swirling around a transfer from Olympique de Marseille, a “large consortium” could arrive at the head of OM according to a supporter of the sale of the Marseille club.
The rumor started again this winter. Consequence of a particularly ambitious transfer window. While Olympique de Marseille must deal with finances in the red, the Olympian leaders did not hesitate to spend more than 40 million euros to attract Vitinha and Azzedine Ounahi and to be loaned Ruslan Malinovskyi with an option of purchase of approximately 15 million euros. What necessarily question.
For some observers, these expenses reinforce the idea of the imminent arrival of a new owner with big means. And all eyes are on Rodolphe Saadé, the big boss of the CMA-CGM, who will become OM’s jersey sponsor next season, replacing the company Cazoo. Many Marseillais already consider that the Franco-Lebanese businessman is not limited to this role of sponsor. And all the more so after the comments made by Stéphane Richard, close to the owner of the CMA-CGM.
With what is being prepared, OM will be able to play in the big leagues
“Rodolphe Saadé is sincerely attached to the city. He is present, he puts in the money. He will end up buying Olympique de Marseille…”, thus confided the former leader of Orange. An assertion taken up by the journalist Emmanuel Lechypre. “They will soon buy OM, it’s only the beginning”, he assured the microphone of BFM Business. Words to which Thibaud Vézirian can only subscribe, who has been repeating for two years that OM is about to be sold…
According to him, Rodolphe Saadé could take advantage of his connections in the Middle East and the Mediterranean to carry out a “large consortium” international and a “big project” for Olympique de Marseille. Enough to allow Ciel et Blanc to once again become a European giant. “With what is being prepared, OM will be able to play in the big leagues”he asserted, nevertheless taking the trouble to specify: “As long as a deal has not been formalized, it does not exist”.
