Chelsea suspends new stadium plans

Chelsea stadium put on hold

Chelsea stadium put on hold

Roman Abramovich could sell Chelsea after he was denied a United Kingdom visa and subsequently shelved the club's plans for a new stadium - but he will demand a hefty price. A brief club statement cited " the current unfavourable investment climate" for their decision.

And now there are issues regarding the plans to build a new stadium, with reports suggesting owner Roman Abramovich has put the 60,000-seater stadium plans on pause.

"No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur", Chelsea said in the statement.

The stadium decision has led to suggestions Abramovich is ready to sell Chelsea, but The Times say this is not the case, with the west London club insisting the 51-year-old remains committed. "The decision was made due to the current unfavorable investment climate".

Could Abramovich walk away from Chelsea?

The delay in renewing Mr Abramovich's investor visa came to light at a time of increased diplomatic tensions between London and Moscow, in the wake of the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.

Instead, Steve Kerr and company will likely adjust the game plan to prevent the Cavs from being this close from here on out. He missed the second, but the Cavs still had a shot to win the game since they got the ball back on the rebound.

The dad-of-seven became the owner of the companies that control Chelsea in June 2003. The Sun also quotes the £1.17bn figure it would take to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.

Earlier, it was reported that Roman Abramovich got an Israeli citizenship and arrived in the territory of the country.

The 51-year-old can not gain entry into the United Kingdom following his failed attempt to get his visa into the country renewed. It has not been confirmed that the Abramovich situation is the reason, but that is the assumption of most observers.

Mancini accused Sarri of hurling homophobic insults at him during a touchline row when he was Inter Milan boss.

Blanc would obviously be available should Conte now leave, although it is understood Avram Grant remains a key member of Abramovich's inner sanctum.
