Roman Abramovich may well have found a solution to the cost of the rebuild of Stamford Bridge in the shape of some mega-rich Chinese investors.

According to The Sun, the Russian held talks with the far eastern businessmen over the possibility of them making a sizeable investment into the club. The tabloid claim that they are considering investing £500M into the Premier League champions.

Stamford Bridge Champions League Night
Chelsea’s stadium, Stamford Bridge, will be looking considerably different in a few years time.

The rebuild of the Bridge has already been given the go-ahead by London mayor Sadiq Khan – but there are still unanswered questions. One of those is, quite simply, who’s going to pay for it?

The Sun note that the rebuild is expected to cost in the region of £500M, so the Chinese investors could cover the entire cost of our new stadium. That would be fantastic from a financial standpoint.

Don’t fear, Chelsea fans!

Don’t worry Chelsea fans, The Sun clarify that Abramovich has no interest in selling the club, and any potential deal will only be an investment into the club – particularly relating to our new ground.
