“I spoke with Abramovich”, Eden Hazard reveals more about Blues’ owner amid Chelsea’s sale

Chelsea legend and current Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard has already admitted in the past that Roman Abramovich ‘loves’ his football amid rumours the Russian could sell the club.

The 31-year-old is currently out in Spain vying for a return to west London in the summer but despite Abramovich’s ambition to make this happen, any deal is now up in the air.

This is because after a long 19-year association with the club, the Russian billionaire is looking to sell up with a price of around £2.6billion touted as satisfactory in this situation.

It comes as the Russian oligarch was once again brought up in Parliament during Prime Minister’s Questions over his links with Vladimir Putin amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He vehemently denies any direct links to Russian president Putin but the decision to step back from decision-making was made to protect the club’s reputation because of an increased focus on the 55-year-old after Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine.

Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss is amongst a number of potential owners who could takeover, with British tycoon Sir Jim Ratcliffe also on the list alongside American businessman Todd Boehly and many others who are currently in the running.

It is expected that Abramovich is looking to drub up a bidding war, as per the Independent, to ensure that the most interested party has the right intentions when purchasing a club that has done so well since the Russian’s takeover in 2023.

Wyss told Blick: “[Abramovich] wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.

Hansjorg Wyss and Roman Abramovich have considerably different net worths.

“I have to wait four to five days now. Abramovich is currently asking far too much. You know, Chelsea owe him £2billion [it is £1.5billion]. But Chelsea has no money. That means: those who buy Chelsea should compensate Abramovich.

“As of today, we don’t know the exact selling price. I can well imagine starting at Chelsea with partners. But I have to examine the general conditions first. But what I can already say: I’m definitely not doing something like this alone. If I buy Chelsea, then with a consortium consisting of six to seven investors.”

With Abramovich helping Chelsea earn their spot on the world map with 21 trophies in 19 years, it’s fair to say any parting of ways will be hard to digest.

Hazard himself has already spoken in a glowingly fashion on the great work and care Abramovich has put into the club and football in general with his verdict all the way back in 2012 when he was signed for more than £30m from Lille.

“I spoke with Abramovich, he is very simple and loves football,” said Hazard via Sports Mole.

“We were on the same wavelength, he wants to confirm Chelsea’s position at the top. Chelsea have made a good investment for me but I did not put any pressure on them.”

If Hazard is to return to a Chelsea side that he has helped attain five trophies during his first stay in the English capital, despite some fresh Man United and Real Madrid concerns, it is highly possible now that the Blues will be run by an entirely different owner.
