Abramovich shells out for Russia's Chelsea fans

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has shelled out for 500 Russian Blues fans so they can attend the Champions League final against Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Abramovich has bought 500 tickets for Chelsea's Russian fans to watch the final in Moscow on Wednesday night.

With black market tickets costing up to 25 times the monthly salary of an average Russian worker, Abramovich has paid out around £50,000 to ensure they can see the match.
