Chelsea FC Put Up For Sale - The Sunday Times


Recommended Posts


Apart from the nonsense written in the Times, other papers are claiming Abramovich either has no plans to sell up and is looking to resume the ground redevelopment, or is just looking to sell a minority stake to generate some investment. It's almost as if these stories are based on guesswork.

And there gentltlemen is our totally unbiased press. 'Chelsea for sale' they cant wait to hammer the club, blazoned all over the place.

Found this buried down the bottom of the page- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6100521/Chelsea-owner-Roman-Abramovich-plans-resume-500million-redevelopment-Stamford-Bridge.html

f**k the lot of them.

Thanks for posting that link..the article basically negates all the rumors being pushed by the media about the club. 

Even if he’s just looking to sell a minority stake in the club to another investor, I feel relieved knowing that Roman is dedicated/committed to the project (and he isn’t going anywhere) and the fact that the stadium redevelopment plans are back on are a testament to that.

I might be he wants to sell a minority stake like city did. 

So we’re valued at two billion. It’s been reported that Roman wants to raise 50% of the one billion stadium cost. 25% of the current value of Chelsea should cover that cost. Am I being too logical about the whole situation?

'Logical', wash your mouth out, surely we can't be that transparent:wink:

The Times again claiming that Sir Jim Ratcliffe is interested in buying the club though has baulked at our valuation of £2.5b. 

The club continue to take the stance that it is not for sale but with Abramovich continuing to remain absent from the club and indefinitely putting the new stadium build on hold Ratcliffe thinks we can be persuaded to sell.

My thoughts, if ever there was a time to sell the club, it's now. 

Roman's visa problems have clearly irked him. Has he lost interest in the club at all? The abrupt cancellation of the new stadium would suggest a reluctance to continue any significant investment in the club. 

He's now handed over the majority of the day to day running of the club to Marina Granovskaia and hasn't attended a game home or abroad all season. 

The Sarri appointment was apparently driven by Granovskaia too so Roman is happy to delegate even the biggest club decisions now. 

Ratcliffe has invested in a sailing team and is set to finance UK cycling team, Team Sky so he's looking to build a sporting portfolio by the looks of it. Grew up as a United fan but is apparently a Chelsea season ticket owner, with a wealth said to be in the region of £21b he's significantly richer than Roman is, would he be looking to increase the level of investment in the club? I can't see why you'd want to buy a football club otherwise because it's very difficult to make any money from it.

Hopefully we can go back to being the bastards we were in the 03/04 summer where we signed someone nearly every other day. :wink:

Forever grateful for everything Roman has done for the club, never dreamed we would be the self sustaining powerhouse club we are today before he arrived.

That being said with all the sh*t that has happened with the Visa issues/putting the stadium rebuild on hold etc..  maybe the ambition has gone, you can see why he might be thinking now is a good time to sell.

I thing you'd be amazed how fast Ratcliffe would become a Chelsea fan...…..about a minute and a half after writing a £2 billion check.

Never. Roman is a true fan and a good owner, also much younger.

To change from the owner that loves the club to a ManUtd fan owner, hm that would lead the club to an epic failure in no time.

When you get into the football industry allegiances change, not every one can end up at their boyhood club be it owner, manager or player.

For example Harry Redknapp was apparently an Arsenal fan, Allardyce was a Wolves fan, Shaw and Lukaku were card carrying Chelsea fans and De Bruyne is trying to prolong 29 years of hurt to a club he supported during part of that run.

Maybe previously, but doesn't seem so now.  He's the owner.  If the way things are being run now are not to his liking, he can change it with one phone call, e-mail, or summons to his yacht.  He chooses to leave it in Marina's hands, so he's either happy with the way things are, or he's not giving it the attention he used to.
