Chelsea are swamped in a fresh crisis after their proposed sale was put in limbo by the UK Government.
Wantaway owner Roman Abramovich has been heavily sanctioned and all of his assets have now been frozen amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine
That makes a sale an impossibility under strict emergency rules but Chelsea will be allowed to carry out their fixtures.
While the freeze continues the club will also be unable to sell tickets – with only season ticket holders permitted to attend games for the foreseeable.
Abramovich is among seven high-profile oligarchs who have been dealt with by the Government.
But the news on Chelsea puts a host of potential owners who have been waiting to move on hold with many parties keen to explore their options.
