Despite Roman Abramovich’s statement that he hands over the stewardship and care of Chelsea, the club’s charitable foundation have not yet agreed to take control, according to BBC and The Telegraph.
As per the sources, there are concerns about whether they would be allowed to run the club in accordance with the Charity Commission rules.
Some of the trustees are also worried about the possibility of acting as a front for the real owner, who of course remains Abramovich.
The billionaire is scrutinized over his alleged links with Vladimir Putin amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
He has not been sanctioned yet, but such an option remains which is why there’s a lot of uncertainty over the whole situation.
It’s understood that Chelsea are not for sale as it stands.
