- The deadline is the end of next week to close the operation
Great news for Chelsea after a week in which they saw the world descending on them after being the victim of a sanction on the assets of Roman Abramovich that involved the total paralysis of the club.
Apparently, the situation has changed. The Daily Telegraph reports that Roman Abramovich would have reached an agreement with the Government to promote the sale of the club, suspended until now. The Russian tycoon reportedly told The Raine Group, the US bank in charge of the sale, to reactivate the operation. However, it is not without conditions. Abramovich has a deadline of the end of next week for the first offers from new buyers to be submitted.
The risk for Chelsea is that, if this cannot be done, it is also possible that the license it has received to resume its activity will be revoked, returning to the strict terms of the beginning that would put the club in serious trouble.
Now, under this umbrella, we will have to see who is the bravest to bid for Chelsea. Billionaire Nick Candy has confirmed that he is interested in the club. “We are examining the details and are still interested in making an offer,” a spokesman for the property developer said. Also interested are Todd Boehly and Hansjorg Wyss, who offered 2,000 million euros, as well as Tom Ricketts, owner of the New York Nets.
