Chelsea takeover in Doubt
The takeover of Chelsea football club by Todd Boehly led consortium has been thrown into doubt. This is after the club owner, Roman Abramovich refused the sale structure that was proposed by the British government. According to reports by Daily Mail, the Russian’s refusal is due to a dispute concerning the £1.6billion debt he is owed by Chelsea’s parent company Fordstam.
The Government are proposing that all of the £2.6billion from Chelsea’s sale to the Boehly-led consortium goes into a holding account before it is satisfied the proceeds will then go to a foundation to help victims of the war in Ukraine.
But, Abramovich and Chelsea are calling for the £1.6billion owed from Fordstam to be repaid to Camberley International Investments and frozen before going to the foundation. If no agreement is reached in the next 16 days, Chelsea’s participation in the English Premier league next season will be over.
