Next Chelsea owners given Arsenal warning ahead of Roman Abramovich sale

A financial expert says Champions League prize money will be essential to ensure Chelsea can maintain its status as a super club under new owners when Roman Abramovich sells.

Chelsea’s new owners must prioritise ensuring that they remain in the Champions League or risk a spiral similar to Arsenal, according to the lead analyst from financial advisors syble.

Three shortlisted groups are waiting to hear which will be put forward as the preferred bidder, potentially later this week, by the club’s board and Raine Group, the merchant bank overseeing the sale on behalf of sanctioned owner Roman Abramovich.

Regardless of the consortium that takes over, vysyble’s John Purcell says that supporters should expect changes to the West London club’s approach to transfers and wages, while pointing to the complexity of Stamford Bridge’s development as another challenge facing the new owners.

But Chelsea ’s status as a super club will remain solidified once they continue to bank UEFA prize money every season. Thomas Tuchel’s side made £92.3million by winning last season’s Champions League and their run to this campaign’s last eight was worth £67.5million.
