Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss considering buying Chelsea FC

The pressure is mounting on Chelsea FC owner Russian Roman Abramovich to steer away from the club and as per reports at least three investors or investment groups are waiting to throw in their bids.


As per Blick, “Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a panic. Abramovich is trying to sell all his villas in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.


“I have to wait four to five days now. Abramovich is currently asking far too much. You know, Chelsea owe him £2 billion. But Chelsea has no money. Means: Those who buy Chelsea should compensate Abramovich.


“As of today, we don’t know the exact selling price. I can well imagine starting at Chelsea with partners. But I have to examine the general conditions first. But what I can already say: I’m definitely not doing something like this alone. If I buy Chelsea, then with a consortium consisting of six to seven investors.”


Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss is reportedly the most suitable candidate who wants to buy Chelsea FC.


Wyss, 86, made his billions in biotech and is apparently a largely shadowy figure known for his liberal leanings, philanthropy, and media meddling. In line with that last bit, he himself dropped this little nugget of information in an interview with Swiss daily Blick, appearing to surprise the journalist as well.
