Chelsea may soon have a new owner after the boss of the team, Roman Abramovich, is ready to sell the controlling stock of blue for £ 2 billion, the Times said.
The Russian oligarch has hired a US investment bank to mediate sales and hopes to get a record for a football team and at the same time put an end to the rebellious era at the helm of Londoners.
It is claimed that he refused a bid of 2 billion earlier this year, but in USD by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, because he hopes to raise more money for his team.
Recently the Russian has problems with the English authorities, because his visa has not been extended and it is not excluded that this is the basis of his decision to sell the team.
Abramovich owns Chelsea since 2003.
