Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss says he has been offered chance to buy Chelsea
The Guardian says The Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss has claimed he has been offered the chance to join a takeover bid for Chelsea as pressure grows on Roman Abramovich to sell the club.
Abramovich’s future at Chelsea is in doubt after he announced plans to relinquish the running of the club and the Labour MP Chris Bryant claimed that the Russian was hastily selling UK properties to avoid potential financial sanctions.
Abramovich’s decision to transfer the stewardship and care of Chelsea to the trustees of the club’s charitable foundation came after a call in parliament for him to face sanctions following the invasion of Ukraine. The move has increased the sense that the 55-year-old, who has vehemently disputed reports suggesting his alleged closeness to Vladimir Putin and Russia or that he has done anything to merit being sanctioned, could be ready to tempted to sell.
