Reports on Sunday claim Abramovich has brought in advisers as part of a strategic review of the Stamford Bridge club
Reports claiming Roman Abramovich is looking to sell Chelsea have been denied by the club.
The Sunday Times has claimed club directors acting for the Abramovich have brought in advisers from Raine Group, the merchant bank, as part of a strategic review.
It is also stated Abramovich rejected an offer for a minority stake in the club from Silver Lake Partners, an American private equity firm.
Furthermore, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Britain’s richest man, was reported to have failed with a £2billion bid to buy the west London club.
It was believed Abramovich was starting to consider selling the Blues back in May, when he put plans to redevelop the club’s Stamford Bridge home on hold in response to delays over the issuing of a UK visa.
However, sources close to the club made it clear Abramovich has no plans to sell Chelsea – and nothing has changed in that regard.
He bought Chelsea in 2003, since when the club have enjoyed the most success in their history, with five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the 2012 Champions League among their trophy wins.
