Russia-Ukraine War: Buyer & Price Revealed As Abramovich Offers To Sell Chelsea

Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich has offered to sell Chelsea football club to Swiss billionaire, Hansjorg Wyss and is demanding in excess of £2billon.

The 55-year-old Russian oligarch, billionaire, businessman, and politician is under the spotlight due to alleged ties to President Vladimir Putin.
U.S President, Joe Biden, during his broadcast on Thursday, in an attempt to squeeze the Russian economy vowed that the West would seize everything that belongs to Russian Oligarchs, including their apartments in retaliation to Russian offensive in Ukraine.

Although Abramovich has strongly denied any ties to Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, but calls for his sanction keeps getting louder.
Wyss, who is reported to have a personal net worth of $5.8billion, claims that it is Abramovich who is trying to engineer an auction, not the other way around.

Speaking to Swiss newspaper, Blick, the 85-year-old said: 
“Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a state of panic.
Abramovich is trying to sell all his properties in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.”
Wyss, however, said that the Russian billionaire and businessman has placed the price for the club so high, also adding that he has to wait to see what happens in the next four or five days.
He Also Added; “You know Chelsea owe him £2billion? But Chelsea has no money, which means that whoever buys Chelsea has to compensate Abramovich,”
