Football England – Roman Abramovich small player, Chelsea will change dimension


Roman Abramovich forced to sell Chelsea, a much richer candidate than the Russian advances his pawns.

Manhandled in the Champions League by Real Madrid, Chelsea is still the reigning European champion. The last trophy won by Roman Abramovich as owner of the Blues, as the oligarch is forced to sell the London club in the coming weeks. For the moment, the bank in charge of the sale is still studying the files, but the number of very serious and successful candidates is drastically limited. One of the big favorites now is Tom Ricketts, American businessman and owner of the Chicago Cubs, a legendary baseball franchise in MLB. To buy Chelsea, this billionaire has a strong financial partner in the person of Ken Griffin. The latter is simply the manager of one of the largest investment funds in the world, and this has earned him a constantly increasing fortune, now estimated at 30 billion euros.

Four times richer than Abramovich

Ken Griffin, who owns the most expensive apartment ever bought in the United States with a property worth more than 200 million euros (a 4-story apartment opposite Central Park in New York), has arrived in London to try to complete the takeover of Chelsea, claims The Telegraph. And with this sizeable financial support, it is a financial investment capacity judged to be four times greater than that which Roman Abramovich could put in which is presented to the bank in charge of assessing the credibility of the candidates. Knowing that the Russian has still put a billion euros out of his pocket to build a team among the best on the continent, this gives hope for a bright future for Blues fans, if ever the candidacy of Tom Ricketts were to be approved. Even if for the moment, Chelsea have other priorities with the return match against Real Madrid and the Premier League where they will have to keep a place in the Top4 to participate in the next Champions League.
