Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic has changed tune on selling the club. The Russian billionaire has asked the bids to be increased by £500 million in last minute demand. The club's takeover has now been narrowed down to three potential bidders who have already submitted their bids prior to approval by the relevant authorities.
As revealed by UK's Sun Football, Abramovic wants the bidders to give out an extra£500 million, this will amount to £2.5 billion required for any of the three bidders to buy the club. However, Abramovic won't receive any of these amount with £1 billion set aside for charity work. This new demand by Abramovic comes few days to the official announcement of the new club owners with the takeover set to be completed in few days to come.
Abramovic lost his ownership of the club few months ago after he was accused of helping Russian President Vladimir Putin in war between Russia and Ukraine. Abramovic was slapped with sanctions by the UK government as well as the European Union and also had his wealth frozen forcing him to jet back to his home country Russia.
