Abramovich sets his price to sell Chelsea

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has set his price to sell the club.

The Telegraph says it appears he has no plans to leave his 16-year project any time soon.

It is claimed that Abramovich has been approached by a number of potential buyers including Sir Jim Ratcliffe - once Britain's richest man.

Ratcliffe already owns Swiss club FC Lausanne-Sport but sources close to Abramovich insist it is "not for sale."

But the report also claims that the Russian would consider entertaining offers if he receives a bid in the region of £3bn.

Abramovich purchased Chelsea outright for £140m.
