CHELSEA owner Roman Abramovich is said to be actively looking for buyers.
Roman Abramovich has already sought out potential buyers for Chelsea after stepping back from his role at the club, but any prospective new owners reportedly face a mountain of debt. Chelsea fans were stunned at the weekend as Abramovich announced – less than 24 hours before the Carabao Cup final – that he was relinquishing ‘stewardship of the club’ in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
But reports quickly emerged that those trustees weren’t fully on board with Abramovich’s plans.
Further discussions have been held with the trustees, who want more details on what is happening.
Reports earlier this week indicated that Abramovich’s announcement had nothing to do with any plans to sell the club.
However, The Telegraph now sensationally claim up to three parties are hopeful of putting an offer on the table to entice Abramovich into selling.
Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss has even come out and said he’s already been offered the chance to buy Chelsea this week.
Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends,” Wyss told Blick.
Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a panic. Abramovich is trying to sell all his villas in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.û
