Roman Abramovich is trying to offload Chelsea quickly.
The Russian billionaire is heavily linked with Vladimir Putin and is terrified of having his assets-Chelsea and Stamford Bridge and multiple properties in London seized.
The 55-year-old is currently looking for a potential suitor for his club in which he personally invested £1.5bn of his own money.
Wyss, founder of Synthes USA has revealed that Abramovich is in the process of engineering an auction for Chelsea.
Wyss said to Blick: ‘Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a state of panic.
‘Abramovich is trying to sell all his properties in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.’
Asked if he will take up the Russian on his offer, Wyss replied: ‘I have to wait four or five days now. Abramovich is currently asking far too much.
‘You know Chelsea owe him £2billion? But Chelsea has no money, which means that whoever buys Chelsea has to compensate Abramovich.
‘As of today, we don’t know the exact selling price.
‘I can well imagine starting at Chelsea with partners, but I have to examine the general conditions first. But what I can say for sure is that I’m definitely not doing something like this alone. If I buy Chelsea, then it would be with a consortium consisting of six or seven investors.’
