As per multiple reports, Pakistan business tycoon Javed Afridi is keen on buying Chelsea FC and has already registered his interest in the same. Afridi, who is the CEO of Haier Pakistan and owner of MG JW Automobile Pakistan, is also the owner of Pakistan Super League (PSL) club Peshawar Zalmi.

Current Chelsea owner Roman Abromovich put out an emotional statement announcing his decision to sell the club after 19 years at the helm. Abramovich is said to have placed a price of £3 billion on the club, and there is a clamour of interest with Chelsea’s successes over the years.

It is unlikely that Javed Afridi will purchase the club entirely, but he could be a part of a consortium of buyers, pretty much like the recent takeover of Newcastle United. A source confirmed to Khaleej Times that a meeting had already taken place.

“Afridi’s team held a meeting this afternoon (Wednesday) with a sports and legal agency in the UK. There’s a bunch of investors who are interested in Chelsea Football Club. They believe it’s the right time and opportunity to invest in football. And someone from Asia should come and invest. They are in a negotiation with them right now,” the source said.

Afridi and his group of investors are likely to face stiff competition from Swiss billionaire Hansjoerg Wyss who claimed to have received an offer from Abramovich. Reports also linked British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe, though those reports are yet to be confirmed.

Abramovich bought Chelsea in June 2003 before turning the London club into one of the biggest teams in Europe with his wealth. Chelsea won five Premier League titles as well as five FA Cup trophies since Abramovich took over the club in 2003.
