Chelsea still up for grabs: Abramovich yet to be convinced by any club offers

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is yet to be convinced by any of the offers he’s received for the club.

The Sunday World says Abramovich is still weighing up offers from potential buyers for Chelsea, with the Russian billionaire determined to select owners that will continue the club’s growth.

Abramovich has already received several serious bids for Chelsea, with more expected amid high interest in the Champions League and Club World Cup holders.

The Russian billionaire put Chelsea up for sale last week, as he looks to sever his business interests in the UK after the invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin and his Russian army.

He is not convinced a joint bid from American billionaire Todd Boehly and Swiss magnate Hansjorg Wyss is right for the club despite their submission of a formal offer on Tuesday.

New York merchant bank the Raine Group is conducting the bid process for Abramovich, who has moved to sell Chelsea after owning the Stamford Bridge club since 2003.

Officials familiar with the sale are understood to have been left slightly bemused by prospective bidders making their candidacies public.

Abramovich officially put Chelsea up for sale on Wednesday, March 2, with little more than an hour before the Blues kicked off their FA Cup fifth-round clash at Luton.
