Roman Abramovich has received numerous serious bids for Chelsea for around 3 billion pounds, according to Newcastle co-owner Amanda Staveley, who claims the Russian has been unfairly treated. After Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Abramovich revealed his decision to sell Chelsea on Wednesday evening, saying he believes "it is in the greatest interest of the club."


Two of the groups said to be interested in buying Chelsea are Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss and American businessman Todd Boehly, while British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe has ruled himself out, stating there is "no validity" to rumors he is considering an offer for his childhood club.

Chelsea's transfer ambitions are in jeopardy.


Chelsea's summer transfer plans have been jeopardized by Abramovich's desire to sell the club, with the Premier League team unlikely to be able to spend extensively in the summer window unless a wealthy new owner is found in the coming months. Since taking over the club in 2003, the Russian billionaire has helped Chelsea win 19 major trophies thanks to his financial backing. Even after withdrawing his application for a UK visa in 2018, Abramovich's support for Chelsea has remained, with the west London club surpassing their transfer record by signing Romelu Lukaku for £97.5 million from Inter Milan last summer.
