The gentleman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi with interest in the club bathed down after sanctions leveled against former possessor Roman Abromovich .
“I genuinely wanted to buy Chelsea, I was interested but there was a short challenge and there were numerous people who had penetrated the bid with over 200 shortlisted. It was cut to five and I was a part of it,”he told Zion Felix.
“But, after my lawyers and financiers met the agents involved in the trading of Chelsea prompted us and we realized the club was owing Abramovich £1.5 billion and there are government sanctions on him. We’ve no idea when that will be dropped and so after our computations we realize it was profitless.”

“I am informed of the intention by the owner of your estimable club, Mr Roman Abramovich, to put Chelsea Football Club for trade. I’m writing this letter to officially affirm my intention for the purchase of same,” a statement from the Wuntumi Business Group read.
