Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi in line to buy Chelsea FC
Chelsea FC is one of England’s and the world’s most successful football clubs, having won six Premier League crowns and nine international trophies. They are presently in third place in the Premier League standings, with 14 victories from 25 games and 50 points. The current UEFA Winners League champions, the ‘Blues,’ are now aiming for a last-eight position in the coveted competition.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that a franchise cricket team owner has expressed interest in purchasing the London-based club. Javed Afridi is one of the most elite players in the fight to take over Chelsea.
According to a tweet from the Spanish sports website Soy Madridista, Javed Afridi is one of the eminent personalities who have expressed interest in taking over as Chelsea owner from Russian-Israeli billionaire Roman Abramovich, who has been under immense pressure over his role as owner of the London-based club due to Russia’s political and military conflict with Ukraine that erupted last week.
Meanwhile, rumors in a leading international newspaper have verified that the Pakistani investor intends to purchase the reigning UEFA Champions League champions.
