Chelsea owe Roman Abramovich £1,041,243,000 and rising
Chelsea were by far this season’s best Premier League team. Roman Abramovich, the club’s owner, must be chuffed with his side’s success. But was it worth it? Fordstam, the company vehicle in control of Chelsea, has announced that Roman’s loan to the Blues has surged past the £1bn mark.
In the year to June 2014, Abramovich’s loan rose from £984m to £1,041,243,000, reports Private Eye.
The good news for Chelsea is that the loan is interest free. And should Abramovich need the money back, he would have to serve notice 18 months before making a demand.
