Chelsea have swiftly denied rumours that Roman Abramovich has put the club up for sale.
A viral news broke on Sunday morning that the Blues had been listed on the market, with mega-rich foreign investors being alerted to the situation. Abramovich was thought to be hoping to secure a world-record sale for the football club he has successfully owned since 2003.
As expected, this news was met with concern from Chelsea fans the world over . Abramovich loves the club and has proven both the affection and respect he has for the supporters throughout his 15-year tenure, by signing choice players and managers to entertain the Stamford faithful. A new owner couldn’t guarantee that.
Our fears may have been premature. Simon Johnson has reported that he has been informed by the club that Abramovich has no intention of selling and there is no truth to the speculation.
The full story may never be known.
Abramovich is incredibly private and a very quiet man, and will not speak out about any reports in the press. For now, we’ll assume that he remains fully committed to the task at hand at Stamford Bridge.
