Chelsea have insisted that owner Roman Abramovich has no plans to sell the club despite fresh speculation linking the club with a takeover by Czech billionaire Petr Kellner.
Reports were rife in June that Abramovich had declined a request by Britain’s richest man Jim Ratcliffe to purchase the Stamford Bridge outfit.
According to Forbes, Kellner’s net worth is estimated to be at an excess of $13bn with sources claiming that he also has a VIP box at Chelsea.
Kellner has also been in a business with Abramovich as a joint shareholder in Evraz, a minerals firm in Russia.
