Chelsea news: The Blues are currently undergoing a process of changing ownership. The Londoners are currently owned by a Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich, who purchased the club from Ken Bates in 2013. The club has seen a lot of success under his ownership in recent years.
The Blues have won 21 trophies since he took charge at the club, including five Premier League trophies, two UEFA Champions League titles, and two Europa League trophies.
However, Abramovich is reported to be a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is currently leading his nation in a war against Ukraine.
The UK government recently put sanctions on him, which restricts Abramovich from owning the club. The Raine Group LLC is currently overseeing the process of Chelsea’s sale.
