REVEALED: Lampard convinces Abramovich to end Chelsea sale plans - despite price set

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has ruled out selling up.

It's been revealed Abramobich's love for the club reignited by the start Frank Lampard has made as manager.

The Telegraph says Abramovich has no intention of selling in the near future.

Two 'close associates' have confirmed the club is now off the market after there were no serious bids in the 18 months since a sale was first considered.

It is claimed a Middle East-based consortium was quoted £2.5billion for Abramovich's but pulled out of a deal due to 'complications relating to a proposed £1.2bn redevelopment of Stamford Bridge.'

The Russian billionaire has now decided against selling the club because of the progress made on the field by Lampard.
