With a sudden decision... Abramovich obstructs the sale of "Chelsea"

The British newspaper, The Sun, reported that there are fears that the sale of Chelsea FC could collapse amid allegations that Roman Abramovich wants to recover about 1.6 billion pounds in the value of loans.

And the British government imposed sanctions on Russian billionaire Abramovich last February, against the backdrop of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, forcing him to offer the club for sale.

And the London club recently reduced the list of potential owners to only 3, before one of Britain's richest men, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, announced his alliance with Todd Boley to buy the London club.

According to the British newspaper, Abramovich is trying to renege on his previous promise to waive a debt of 1.6 billion pounds, despite his previous assertion that he would not ask for those sums when the club was offered for sale. According to the report mentioned in the newspaper, this surprising step by Abramovich may hinder the sale of the London club to the alliance of Todd Boley and Jim Ratcliffe on the specified date, that is, on May 31.

On the other hand, the English newspaper "The Times" confirmed that the British government will not extend the deadline to complete the sale of Chelsea.

As for the British newspaper, “The Telegraph”, it indicated that in the event that Chelsea obtained the final license after completing the sale process before next June 8, which is the same day of the Premier League meeting to draw up the structure for the next season, Chelsea will be written off from the “Premier League” for the season.
