Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich isn’t interested in selling his club.

Recall Abramovich has not appeared at the Blues’ matches for a whole year, since the very moment when he faced problems with the extension of a UK visa.

Throughout this year, rumors didn’t abate that Roman had lost interest in Chelsea and was looking for a buyer for the club. Only this week, the richest man in Britain, Jim Ratcliffe, hinted that he would like to become a new owner of the Blues.

However, Sky Sports has learned from its sources that Abramovich didn’t negotiate with either Ratcliffe or other potential buyers.

The Russian billionaire intends to continue to own Chelsea. However, so far, he has to manage the club remotely – through his confidant persona, Marina Granovskaia.
