Soy Madridista tweeted on Wednesday.

The English Premier League club is currently owned by Roman Abramovich, a Russian billionaire, who put the club up for sale after the Russia-Ukraine conflict broke out last week.

According to Khaleej Times, a meeting had already taken place between the representatives of Afridi and with a sports and legal agency in the UK. “There’s a bunch of investors who are interested in Chelsea Football Club,” the publication citing its source reported.

Swiss billionaire Hansjoerg Wyss, who claimed to have received an offer from Abramovich, is expected to put Afridi and his group of investors up against the fierce competition.

Abramovich took over Chelsea back in June 2003. Since then, the London-based club won five Premier League titles as well as five FA Cup trophies.

The Blues have also won the Champions League twice (2012, 2021).
