The sale of Chelsea Football Club has been put in doubt following reported demands by sanctioned owner, Roman Abramovich, for his £1.5b loan to the club be repaid.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the Todd Boehly-led consortium had been declared as the preferred bidders in the club’s sale.
A late drama unfolded afterwards as British billionaire, Jim Ratcliffe, made an improved offer to buy the club.
Further twists developed, with The Times, reporting that the club’s sanctioned owner, Roman Abramovich, who had earlier written off his loan to the club, has taken a U-turn and demanded the club pay up.
Fans worry for the future of the club following the Russian’s new stance and wonder when the issue of the club’s new ownership will be resolved.
Sources claim that Roman’s new stance is connected to Ratcliffe’s attempt to hijack the bidding process.
At this stage club supporters can only wait and hope for the best in this uncertain times.
