From Abramovic to Wontumi: Ghanaian businessman makes audacious Chelsea purchase claim

Ghanaian businessman and politician, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, alias Chairman Wontumi, has revealed plans to buy Chelsea.

The Ashanti Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) believes he has the financial muscle to meet the English Premier League side’s £3 billion valuation price.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich announced his decision to sell the club weeks ago following pressure from the United Kingdom government in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The Russian billionaire is said to have close ties with President Vladimir Putin, whose invasion of Ukraine has led to several deaths and injuries.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Wontumi FM, Chairman Wontumi said his gold-mining business can finance his purchase of the club.

“What I want to do now is to buy Chelsea Football Club. I’m a businessman, I do gold mining and [I can afford] £3 billion,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports reports that about 10 parties have already expressed interest in buying the London-based club, the majority of whom are from the USA.
