AMERICAN billionaire Todd Boehly is reportedly ready to make a second bid for Chelsea.
However, it’s understood the Russian has no intention of selling up at Stamford Bridge.
And he now values Chelsea at £3billion, which could dissuade Boehly from making any further attempts.
Boehly – the former president of asset manager group Guggenheim Partners – has long been tipped with a takeover of a Premier League club.
The part-owner of baseball team LA Dodgers revealed his interest in buying a London-based club, with Chelsea and Tottenham quickly identified as his top options.
Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003 and his money helped inspire the club to the best period in their history.
However, his role at the club has been thrown into question in recent years.
Abramovich saw his application for a UK investor visa halted last year – as the Russian took up Israeli citizenship.
The Blues owner was barely seen at Chelsea games either – absent at Stamford Bridge since early 2018 – with plans for a new stadium hitting a brick wall with their financial situation uncertain.
But Club chairman Bruce Buck has said Abramovich is going nowhere – while other reports claimed new boss Frank Lampard has reignited the Russian’s “love affair” with the club.
