Anticipating the sanctions taken against the Russian oligarchs after the start of the war in Ukraine, the billionaire Roman Abramovich put the Chelsea football club in the United Kingdom, which was his property, up for sale in March. He has just found a buyer in the person of the American Todd Boenly who already owns the Los Angeles baseball team, the Dodgers. Amount of the transaction: 4.25 billion pounds sterling or 5.2 billion dollars or 5.48 billion euros. And the information appeared in the sports section of the media. Proof that sport leads to everything. As Pierre de Coubertin could have said: in football, the important thing is to participate… financially.
