New buyers approach Abramovich at Chelsea – (Full Details)

Interested parties are said to be on “high alert” over the possible sale of Chelsea, according to Bloomberg.

This week, Labour MP Chris Bryant, used parliamentary privilege to question Roman Abramovich’s ownership of the Premier League club.

This followed Russian president Vladimir Putin’s decision to launch a military invasion of Ukraine earlier this week.

It is now understood that potential suitors – including some based in the US – have begun drawing up takeover bids amid the uncertainty.

These alleged individuals interested in buying Chelsea remain anonymous.

Abramovich took over as the Blues owner in 2003 and has invested heavily in the club, overseeing the most successful era in their history.

During the last two decades, Chelsea have won countless trophies – including five Premier League titles and the Champions League twice.

Chris Bryant speech in the House of Commons suggests that Chelsea owner Abramovich is a huge sponsor of the Russian government and should not be allowed to run businesses in the Uk owing to the recent attacks in Ukraine by the Russian government.

He said: “As part of HMGs Russia strategy, aimed at targeting illicit finance and malign activity, Abramovich remains of interest to HMG due to his links to the Russian state and his public association with corrupt activity and practices.

“An example of this is Abramowich admitting in court proceedings that he paid for political influence.

“Therefore HMG is focused on ensuring individuals linked to illicit finance and malign activity are unable to base themselves in the UK and will use the relevant tools at its disposal including immigration powers to prevent this.

“That’s nearly three years ago, and yet remarkably little has been done in relation. Surely Mr. Abramovich should no longer be able to own a football club in this country?

“Surely we should be looking at seizing some of his assets, including his 152 million pound home? And making sure that other people who’ve had tier one visas like this are not engaged in malign activity in the UK.”
