Chelsea season ticket holder offers £2billion to Roman Abramovich for the club

Britain’s Richest Man Ratcliffe Offers £2bn For Chelsea

Despite problems renewing his United Kingdom visa, Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich refused to sell Chelsea FC to the man described as the richest person in Britain.

Jim Ratcliffe, the billionaire boss of multinational petrochemicals giant Ineos and a season-ticket holder at Stamford Bridge, expressed an interest in buying the club amid speculation the Russian oligarch could be prepared to sell.

Purchasing the Blues would cost Ratcliffe over £1bn but the bid was rejected by our Russian owner as he made it clear he is not looking to severing any ties with the Premier League club, despite recent issues.

With doubts over Abramovich's political status, Britain's richest man Jim Ratcliffe has made an approach to take the club of the Russians hands.

Already, Ratcliffe's company Ineos recorded sales of about KSh 6 trillion and now has over 18,500 people in 22 countries in its payroll. However, it is understood that Abramovich has no intentions of selling the club.

American Football was the next most-represented sport with 18 players, followed by baseball with 14 and football with nine. The Forbes list factored in prize cash, salaries and bonuses earned between June 1, 2017 and this past June 1.


Ratcliffe, who grew up in Manchester, has not previously linked with buying into English football.

It means there's been speculation that Abramovich could up sticks after buying Chelsea for £140million in 2003. The businessman missed the FA Cup final victory against Manchester United that sparked further unrest among the Chelsea camp. It returned to Britain two years ago, where it is based near Harrods in London's Knightsbridge.

He is providing financial backing for the Daily Mile Foundation charity and has said that one of his missions is to improve the country's health.

But it appears Ratcliffe won't be getting near Chelsea any time soon, despite dwarfing Abramovich's personal wealth by around £11bn.

Mr Ratcliffe's spokesman said: 'We can not comment on rumour and speculation'.
