Saudi Arabia is in a ‘trance’ this summer. After bringing many stars to their league, they decided to take over Marseille football club as well.
Namely, the State Fund of Saudi Arabia is already in final negotiations regarding the purchase of the French football club Olympique Marseille.
Announcements have been coming for days that the rich Saudis, in addition to Newcastle, will buy another club from the ‘league of five’, and now it is known which club it is.
The state fund has prepared an offer of 400 million euros, but now it is speculated that they will have to increase the offer in order to succeed in buying a club like Marseille.
The club is currently owned by American businessman Frank McCourt, who has no need to sell it, and has invested a lot in the club in recent years.
