Blues face financial ruin; Roman Abramovich ‘to sell Chelsea despite sanctions’

Chelsea could face financial ruin in the wake of having some of their corporate accounts frozen by ‘risk-opposed’ banks.

Barclays are one of the banks to have suspended the Blues account.

And it has been reported that Roman Abramovich has given the go-ahead to an offer of Chelsea with bids to be taken next week.

This is in spite of the Russian not having the option to procure a penny from any deal because of sanction.

In his press conference, boss Thomas Tuchel admitted that many players and staff were worried about their futures.

But there has been some good news for Chelsea fans as Nike are reportedly set to stand-by their kit deal with the club.

Meanwhile the Blues may be allowed to continue selling tickets to non-season ticket holders and away fans if they donate the profits from the sales to victims of the war in Ukraine.

Roman Abramovich has been banned from selling the club by the government amid sanctions on Russian oligarchs.

Shirt sponsor Three have also suspended their deal with the Blues, asking for their logo not to appear on shirts for the foreseeable future.

It comes as New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and a private Saudi consortium had joined the race to buy the club.

Billionaire Abramovich is said to have had over 300 parties express their interest in buying the Blues he values at £3billion.
