Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich FROZEN by EU, Lukaku ‘will take PAY CUT for Inter transfer’, Tuchel latest

Info on the Saudi billionaire who is considering the takeover of Chelsea

In just over a day, Chelsea went from financially crippled to potentially rescued – thanks to Mohamed Alkhereiji, written DAVE FRASER.

Roman Abramovich put the Blues up for sale earlier this month but was soon sanctioned over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Initially, the oligarch was prohibited from selling the club.

But after Abramovich agreed to forfeit any proceeds from the sale of Chelsea, the government allowed him to press ahead with his bid to leave the west London club.

And already a bid has been tabled, with the private consortium Saudi Media Group – led by Alkhereiji – submitting a £2.7bn offer.

Abramovich had hoped for £3 billion, but could accept the offer in the interest of a quick sale.

Rivaling British billionaire Nick Candy and a number of other parties including Hansjorg Wyss and Todd Boehly, Alkhereiji is just the latest to take an interest in running the Stamford Bridge show.

Who is Mohamed Alkhereiji?

Alkhereiji is a Saudi businessman… and Chelsea fan.

He heads the Saudi Media Group – the party behind the £2.7billion bid – and is the CEO of parent company Engineer Holding Group, founded by his father, Abdulelah Alkhereiji.

Alkhereiji does have ties to the UK, however, having studied at Cass Business School in London and also spending three years working at Deutsche Bank.
