It’s been a strange kind of season, on and off the pitch, so far.
With Chelsea’s fortunes fluctuating on the pitch, under the managerial acumen of, probably, the most unpopular occupant of the hot-seat since one Rafael Benitez, there have also been some shenanigans behind the scenes.
Sadly, our owner, Roman Abramovich, hasn’t been able to enter the country due to the government going way over the top with regards to a refusal to grant him a visa.
Subsequently, it’s hard to gauge whether Roman’s interest in the club remains as intense as in previous years or whether the governments’ intervention in his lifestyle has peeved him off enough to consider selling Chelsea Football Club.
As a result, speculation has once again appeared in the media, this time courtesy of the news source, the Times, inferring that the richest man in Britain, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is looking at buying the club of which he is a season ticket holder.
However, Ratcliffe who has recently completed the purchase of the cycling outfit Team Sky isn’t prepared to pay the £2.5 billion price he’s supposedly, been quoted.
Now whether or not a change of ownership is on the cards remains to be seen, but, here at Vital Chelsea, we’d like to know if you think Roman’s tenure as our owner is set to end and if so is Sir Jim Ratcliffe somebody who get your approval?
