The British government today (Wednesday 25) approved the sale of football club Chelsea United Kingdom. The approval was given by the country’s Sports Minister Nadine Doris.
With government support, the club will be taken up by a consortium led by businessman Todd Bohley, a member of the LA Dodgers Baseball Club in the United States, and supported by the Clearlake Capital Fund. The group won the auction in early May to buy the English team for around 4 4 billion (approximately R $ 25 billion).
After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Chelsea was put up for sale by their former owner, Roman Abramovich, a Russian billionaire close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In addition to his acquisition of Chelsea, Abramovich also owns shares in steel company Evros and Norilsk Nickel. His net worth is currently around $ 12.3 billion and his net worth has already risen to $ 23.5 billion in 2008.
In 2005, the billionaire sold a 73% stake in Russian oil company Chipneft to state-owned gas company Cosprom for $ 13 billion.
