The British government’s sanctions on Roman Abramovich directly affect Russian billionaire Chelsea. Above Blues The British press reported this Friday, 11, that all club accounts had been blocked by British bank Barclays after all their assets were frozen and mobile phone company Three lost its sponsorship. The British government says it can facilitate negotiations if interested parties appear, unable to sell for a moment.
Abramovich, a close friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, decided to disband the club when he found himself under pressure from public opinion and the British parliament after the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops. Negotiations stalled until further notice due to sanctions. However, the British government said that the way would be “open” if Chelsea found a buyer. If the outlook is not positive, the activities of the club may be affected.
“If the license (to continue as a football club) is conditional today, the sale will not be allowed. However, if the buyer appears, the way will be opened for him and the club to go to the government and place a request.
The “licenses” specified by the Minister allow the club to continue to operate and financially regulate under certain conditions, even if they continue to be regulated by the government. Today, Chelsea can pay their salaries under a license issued by the authorities. But it cannot sell tickets, negotiate official products, transfers or contracts.
However, the club may still seek to change this licensing condition. A spokesman for Boris Johnson said: “The British government is in contact with Chelsea and the Premier League to resolve any issues created by the sanctions.” In addition, he said, the club would only seek a new license in accordance with its wishes and intentions.
Chris stressed that the government would work with Chelsea to find this new buyer. Prior to the ban, names such as “New York Jets” football owner Christopher Johnson and Swiss billionaire Hans Jர்க்rg Wise were broadcast in place of Abramovich.
“The only limitation that the government wants to guarantee (with Chelsea’s sale) is that the financial benefits will not fall into Abramovich’s hands,” the minister concluded.
Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea manager, also spoke about the situation on Thursday. “We hope to find a solution that will allow Chelsea to continue throughout the season and hope the government finds a solution with the potential to make their own decisions during the mid-year transfer window,” German said.
