Roman Abramovich has no interest in selling club – Bruce Buck

Chelsea not for sale!. Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck says owner Roman Abramovich has no interest in selling the club and remains as committed as ever, even though he has not attended any of the last 43 home games.

The Russian oligarch, who bought the club in 2003, has put the brakes on plans of a £1billion redevelopment of Stamford Bridge and is on a third manager since his British visa expired last year.

Issues over Abramovich’s citizenship arose at a time when tensions with Russia were high following the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury in March 2018.

Abramovich has since become an Israeli citizen and attended Chelsea’s Europa League Final victory over Arsenal in Baku last May.

Buck revealed offers to buy the club have been knocked back and that Abramovich has no plans to cash in.
