The Russian oligarch at first reported that he was giving over his “stewardship and care” of the Blues to the club’s legal administrators in the midst of fears of authorizations following Russia’s intrusion of Ukraine.
Abramovich was not accepted to have been keen on selling, however the 55-year-old affirmed on Wednesday that he was inviting offers for the European heroes in a shock new development.
MMA warrior McGregor responded to the news with a screen capture of a WhatsApp message with an obscure individual in which he expressed: “Chelsea available to be purchased £3bn. We should get it.”
The 33-year-old imparted the trade on Twitter to the subtitle “I wish to investigate this. @ChelseaFC” as Abramovich plans to surrender control of the club.

Chelsea – who saw off Luton Town 3-2 in the FA Cup following the news – have won 21 trophies during Abramovich’s 19-year spell in West London, including five Premier League titles and two Champions League crowns
