the UK government make it well known that Chelsea is on borrowed time
It’s been about two months since Chelsea was put up for sale, as Roman Abramovich decided to sell the club following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The sanctions imposed on the club have seen Chelsea unable to negotiate a contract or transfer deals with players, as the club is currently working via an operational license.
Britain’s Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport told the BBC on Thursday, that Chelsea is now on borrowed time.
“Chelsea is very much on borrowed time at the moment. There is a very short window left for that sale to take place. It has to happen soon,” Nadine Dorries told the BBC’s Newscast podcast.
Asked what would happen if that window closed without Chelsea being sold, Dorries declined to say but added that the club had “weeks” to be sold.
