Roman Abramovich’s connections to Vladimir Putin’s government prohibit the Russian from living in the United Kingdom and, according to Bloomberg, is prepared to sell Chelsea, a club he acquired in 2003 (at the time he paid 155 million euros) and in which he invested a veritable river of money over these two decades.
The potential sale of Chelsea to another investor will, in any case, be an unprecedented transaction in English football. Currently, the London emblem is valued by the consultancy KPMG at around two billion euros. To give you an idea, Newcastle, for example, was sold in 2021 to a Saudi consortium for 363 million euros.
Roman Abramovich will have a personal fortune valued at more than 12 billion euros. In these 19 years, the Russian helped Chelsea win 19 titles, including two Champions League s (2012 and 2021).
