There are at least 10 parties interested in purchasing Chelsea Football Club from Roman Abramovich.
The Russian billionaire announced earlier this month that he was putting the club up for sale following his country’s invasion of Ukraine.
A number of interested parties have now been revealed, with reports also suggesting that Abramovich is now ‘considering’ his first offer from US billionaire Todd Boehly.
It comes as Premier League rivals Newcastle United are reportedly weighing up a move for Blues defender Antonio Rudger, whose contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season – but have one major concern over the player.
Serious buyers revealed
At least 10 serious buyers are said to have registered an interest in acquiring Chelsea from Roman Abramovich.
The Russian billionaire reportedly wants £3billion to part ways with the club he purchased for £140million in 2003.
Reports have now claimed that at least 10 interested parties have come forward regarding the purchase of the club, and details of their identities are also coming to light.
And the latest reports have identified two of those parties – with Blues fans still wondering what will happen to their club.
Abramovich ‘considering’ offer
The first bid has reportedly been lodged to purchase Chelsea from Roman Abramovich.
It is claimed that American billionaire Todd Boehly, who also part-owns the LA Dodgers Major League Baseball franchise, is heading a consortium which also includes Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss.
Reports claim that the consortium moved swiftly to get quick bid in once Abramovich announced he would be putting the club up for sale – but they are yet to hear back about their offer.
That could mean it is now a waiting game to find out who the next Chelsea owner will be.
