Chelsea Takeover – New reports suggest that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will demand his £1.6Bn loan to be repaid. The Chelsea owner previously announced that he’ll not be asking for any loans to be paid. 

 “I will not be asking for any loans to be repaid. This has never been about business or money for me, but about a pure passion for the game and club.”  

The Russian announced in March.

Reports emerged last week that a consortium led by Todd Boehly was picked as the preferred bidder. Talks were to be concluded this week. However, with Abramovich asking for the repayment of his loan, the takeover talks will stall for now.

Reports suggest Abramovich could not write off the debt because of the hefty sanctions laid on him by the UK Government. 

This recent development on Chelsea takeover talks could derail the club’s plans for next season. The authorities set the deadline for the takeover on May 31st, and that looks highly unlikely because of the latest development.

This will affect Chelsea’s plans for the summer. Although Thomas Tuchel has reiterated his desire to stay on as Chelsea boss, if there is no clarity to the Chelsea takeover talks, by the end of the May, the German could reconsider his stance.

Chelsea are already resigned to losing Antonio Rüdiger because of the uncertainty around the club. The whole of next season is at risk now with the recent reports.
