When Abramovich took over, I remember reading it in the Telegraph. We had to do some weird data collection for a maths project, and it involved newspapers. The story was several days old, and it had gone over my head how seismic it was. It took my mate, who wasn't even that into football, to go over it and how important it was. At the time there had never really been a super rich benefactor involved in English football, and as Chelsea were at the time a reasonably successful club who had qualified for the Champions League, I failed to see why it'd matter anyway. How naive.

Is this era coming to an end?

Roman Abramovich is taking advice from the banking sector about a potential £3 billion sale of Chelsea, according to reports.

According to Bloomberg's Stephanie Baker, David Hellier and Irina Reznik (h/t The Sun's Anthony Chapman), the Russian businessman would consider a sale of his club if a bid meets his valuation. Sir Jim Ratcliffe reportedly had a £2 billion offer rejected by Abramovich in the summer. Ratcliffe is the richest man in the country, and Abramovich has withdrawn his application for a new U.K. visa, a spokesperson told Chapman.
