Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich is set to sell the club to Swiss billionaire, Hansjorg Wyss for £2billon amidst Russian-Ukrainian war.
The 55-year-old Russian oligarch is alleged to have ties ith President Vladimir Putin but U.S President, Joe Biden, during his broadcast on Thursday, vowed that the West would seize everything that belongs to Russian Oligarchs, including their apartments.
Abramovich has strongly denied any links to the Russian President, but calls for his sanction keeps getting louder.
Speaking to Swiss newspaper, Blick, the 85-year-old said: “Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a state of panic.
“Abramovich is trying to sell all his properties 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.”
Wyss, however, said that the Russian billionaire businessman has placed the price for the club so high, adding that he has to wait to see what happens in the next four or five days.
“You know Chelsea owe him £2billion? But Chelsea has no money, which means that whoever buys Chelsea has to compensate Abramovich,” he added
