Breaking: Abramovich to resume Stamford Bridge redevelopment plan

A look at the stories in Monday’s newspapers involving Chelsea…

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is to resume plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Mail.

It comes after the Sunday Times claimed that Abramovich is plotting a sale of the club.

There has been speculation about the Russian’s intentions since he shelved plans to redevelop the Bridge, which was seen as a response to issues with his UK visa.

Chelsea are adamant that Abramovich has no plans to sell the club and that he remains fully committed.

And the Daily Mail say staff at Chelsea have been told that the redevelopment project will restart even though a date has not yet been specified.

Meanwhile, The Times say Abramovich will demand an offer of at least £2.5bn to consider selling Chelsea.

But The Times also say he “is not actively looking to sell the club” despite having “received numerous inquiries” since his visa problems earlier this summer.
