This week, we will witness some significant steps in the process of determining which company will be purchasing Chelsea Football Club from Roman Abramovich.
The owner of the Blues has been sanctioned by the United Kingdom government, and the team has been on the market for many weeks.
Several theories have been advanced as to who will have the ultimate say on which of the last four shortlisted bidders will be selected to purchase the club; some believe it will be the UK government, while others believe it will be Raine Group, the bankers in charge of negotiating the sale.
However, according to a story in The Times, it will be Abramovich and the present Chelsea board of directors who will make the ultimate choice on who will be the club’s next owner.
We are dealing with a monumental choice, and you can be sure that Abramovich himself will want the club to be in safe hands with someone who will keep them competitive and successful.
