I Have Decided To Sell Chelsea – Abramovich

Russian-Israeli billionaire, Roman Abramovich has confirmed he will be selling Chelsea Football Club following the invasion of Ukraine by Russian soldiers. In a statement on Wednesday, Abramovich stated that all net proceeds from the sale would be donated to victims of the war in Ukraine.

Abramovich disclosed that he has set up a charitable foundation to supervise the donation to the victims, adding that the sale of Chelsea “will not be fast-tracked but will follow due process”. The Russian oligarch said he will not collect the £1.5billion he borrowed Chelsea during the £140m deal in 2003.

He said: “I would like to address the speculation in media over the past few days in relation to my ownership of Chelsea FC. As I have stated before, I have always taken decisions with the club’s best interest at heart. In the current situation, I have therefore taken the decision to sell the club, as I believe this is in the best interest of the club, the fans, the employees, as well as the club’s sponsors and partners. “The sale of the club will not be fast-tracked but will follow due process. I will not be asking for any loans to be repaid. “This has never been about business nor money for me, but about pure passion for the game and club.

Moreover, I have instructed my team to set up a charitable foundation where all net proceeds from the sale will be donated. The foundation will be for the benefit of all victims of the war in Ukraine. “This includes providing critical funds towards the urgent and immediate needs of victims, as well as supporting the long-term work of recovery. “Please know that this has been an incredibly difficult decision to make, and it pains me to part with the club in this manner.
