A last roll of the dice in Ligue 1 could now offer the Portuguese talisman an opportunity to feature in Europe's elite competition.

According to talkSPORT, a move to Marseille has been mooted, with ex-Marseille striker Jean-Charles De Bono revealing Les Olympiens have already conducted a study into the financial feasibility of signing Ronaldo.

De Bono claims that the study is similar to the one done by Paris Saint-Germain before they signed Lionel Messi on a free transfer.

“A study is being carried out to find out what Ronaldo could bring to the club financially,” De Bono was quoted saying.
“Olympique decided to study the impact Ronaldo is having on sponsors around the world to bring them to Marseille," he added.
