Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich plans to sell the club to the most suitable buyer – even if it means him losing money.
Abramovich and his advisers are eager to sell Chelsea as soon as possible, after the Russian billionaire confirmed he had reluctantly decided of off-load the club he bought back in 2003.
While there are suggestions Abramovich is demanding £3billion to sell Chelsea, it has emerged that he is determined to ensure the club are in safe hands when he walks away after he decided to sell following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
That means he will not be compelled to accept the best cash offer and will instead look to ensure the club is in “safe hands” as it starts a new era, says the Sunday World.
Several high profile potential owners have been approached by Abramovich and his team of advisers in recent days, with potential buyers in Qatar, Dubai and America believed to have been among those to have expressed an interest.
