Bold plan: Mourad Boudjellal

Never short of ambition, Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal has declared that he wants to sign the four 'Fantastiques' of world rugby.

Speaking after Toulon became Heineken Cup champions for the second year running, Boudjellal revealed his ambitions to bring more of the world's best talent to the Stade Mayol.

"I have an idea in my head, a crazy idea, and I will try to make it happen," said Boudjellal

"There are the four Fantastic players in world rugby. I want to do the Grand Slam."

Dropping the hint that "they wear a black jersey", immediately the likes of Dan Carter, Richie McCaw, Sonny Bill Williams and Kieran Read spring to mind.

But who else might Boudjellal be thinking of to join a squad that next season will include Bryan Habana, Leigh Halfpenny, Bakkies Botha and more?

Let us know who you think Boudjellal holds in such high regard in the comments.
