'He's in a state of panic': Swiss billionaire claims Roman Abramovich offered Chelsea to him and '3 other people'

"Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a state of panic," Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss told Blick.

"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.

"I have to wait four or five days now. Abramovich is currently asking far too much.

"You know Chelsea owe him £2billion? But Chelsea has no money, which means that whoever buys Chelsea has to compensate Abramovich.

"As of today, we don’t know the exact selling price. I can well imagine starting at Chelsea with partners, but I have to examine the general conditions first.

"But what I can say for sure is that I’m definitely not doing something like this alone. If I buy Chelsea, then it would be with a consortium consisting of six or seven investors."

Roman Abramovich has also denied close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin but in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Chelsea owner is increasingly under pressure.

It has been claimed that for the first time, he might consider selling Chelsea before the UK imposes sanctions and freezes his assets.
